Description

The primary focus of the Emergency Medical Technician is to provide basic emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. This individual possesses the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance. The Emergency Medical Technician is a link from the scene to the emergency health care system. Upon successful completion of the EMT course, students will be eligible to test for EMT certification with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT). Upon successfully earning NREMT certification students may apply for their Iowa EMT license.

Course Overview

The Mary Greeley EMT course consists of 160 hours of classroom and skills lab and 32 hours of clinical and ride time. Classroom sessions focus on topics such as anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, patient assessment, airway management, cardiac arrest management, shock, pharmacology, ambulance operations, radio communications, and many more! Classroom and skills sessions teach to the National Emergency Medical Services Education Standards-EMT Instructional Guidelines. Our goal is to prepare our students to successfully complete NREMT certification, State of Iowa licensure, and have the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful EMTs in the field.

Classes are held Monday and Thursday evening from 6-10 PM with 1 Saturday class each month. The schedule is designed to align closely with the ISU academic calendar. Course work is progressive in nature, and is consistent with college level learning. As such, excellent reading comprehension is necessary and dedication to studying the materials is a must.
