EMT Basic and EMT Advanced

The EMT Program is offered at both the Basic and Advanced Level.  Each level program is eight credit hours.  The courses prepare students to work in a fast-paced setting as part of an emergency response team.  Students will learn the skills necessary to administer first aid treatment or life support care to sick or injured persons in pre-hospital settings, perform emergency diagnostic and treatment procedures, administer drugs, report patient condition to physicians and other medical staff, drive and maintain mobile intensive care units, and coordinate work with police and fire department personnel.  Taught in a blended format, the program has classroom lecture, lab and clinical experiences in the ER and on an ambulance.  Upon successful completion of the program, students will be prepared to sit for the National EMS and Wyoming EMS certification exam at the appropriate level (Basic or Advanced).  Interested in additional information about being an EMT, and the NWC EMT Program?  Learn more!
