The Basic Emergency Medical Technology program serves the training needs of entry-level emergency caregivers, vital links in the chain of the health care team, who wish to meet the educational requirements set by the Arkansas Department of Health so that they can provide safe and effective pre-hospital emergency medical care.
This program incorporates the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Standard Curriculum for EMT-Basic education, and upon successful completion of the course, graduates will be qualified to sit for the National Registry EMT-Basic Certification examination. Students must pass the examination to become certified.
Students must register for the class through the admissions office at the beginning of the semester when the class is offered. Ride time and clinical hours are assigned by the instructor.
