Any EMT wishing to attend should notify the EMT class coordinator at email@example.com prior to attending a class.
If you are now an EMT-Basic, you will need to complete the transition education to be licensed as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). This material complies with the new National EMS Education Standards. Your department educator will have the system training materials (Powerpoint presentation and notes).
The links below will provide you with videos of the training modules for you to
review. These videos do not take the place of completing the education.
