EMS & EMT
Our Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Emergency Medical Technicians (also known as EMT-Basic) provide medical aid to those in need during emergency situations such as accidents or illness. An EMT-Basic has the emergency skills to assess a patient's condition and manage respiratory, cardiac and trauma emergencies.
TCC’s EMT program offers a broad education in the principles and practical applications of fire and emergency medical services. You will earn required state and national certifications necessary for employment with fire departments, industrial firms, governmental agencies, fire protection companies, healthcare agencies, and emergency medical services agencies.
If you are seeking entry-level employment in municipal fire departments, you will need certification as a Firefighter/Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (FF/EMT). If you are interested in employment in the healthcare field, you will benefit from the Healthcare Specialist/Paramedic (HS/Paramedic) option.
The Emergency Medical Technician courses at TCC are designed to prepare you to take the National Registry EMT written exam and psychomotor exam and to function successfully in the field as a Nationally Registered EMT. No prior experience or knowledge is required.
