Job Related Opportunities:

  • EMTs are a mainstay in public health and community service agencies operating emergency vehicles that respond to traffic accidents, fires, explosions, cave-ins, emergency rescue calls and other life-threatening situations. Some also assist in patient care in hospitals, with specific instruction and supervision.

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. 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.

These courses will apply toward the AS degree in Emergency Medical Services.
