Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) conduct noninvasive interventions to help save lives and reduce harm at emergency sites. They can do everything a responder does, plus they have the skills needed to transport patients safely. In many places, EMTs provide the majority of out-of-hospital care.


Emergency Medical Technician Job-Direct Low Unit Certificate

For the certificate, a student must complete EMT 112 Emergency Medical Technician (Basic) successfully. This course, for which the prerequisite is successful completion of EMT 128 Emergency Medical Responder, will prepare students to take the National Registry Emergency Medical Technician (Basic) Exam as required by the state of California for certification. Certification enables students to qualify for employment with ambulance services, fire or rescue services, search and rescue crews, ski patrol, or related pre-hospital emergency care positions.
