Program Summary

This program is designed to produce Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), whose job it is to deliver the pre-hospital, life support care and transportation necessary for victims of accidents and emergency illness. 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. Successful completion of the prescribed courses and the awarding of a diploma of completion means eligibility to take either the State of Florida examination for certification or National Registry exam for certification as an EMT-Basic. See admission requirements in BOT Rule 6Hx23-4.55.
