CTC offers EMT night courses during summer semester

Special to the HHES

Central Texas College (CTC) will offer two Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) courses in the evening during the summer semester. The 10-week classes, Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMSP 1401) and Clinical-EMT (EMSP 1160) will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 9:50 p.m. with some additional Saturdays. The classes include 128 classroom hours and 96 clinical/field internship hours.

Applications for the EMT program are being accepted now and interested students must complete the application process before registering for the classes. As part of the application process, students must provide copies of a current American Heart Association Health Care Provider CPR card and copies of their high school/GED transcript/diploma or college transcripts.

Students must also provide proof of a medical physical, MMR 1 and 2, Tetanus/Dip less than 10 years, PPD results less than 90 days old, hepatitis B series (or signed waiver) and varicella or documented proof of chicken pox immunizations. Students are required to take a background and drug screen prior to entrance into the program. A course textbook and uniform are required and available for purchase from the CTC campus bookstore.

Those who complete the courses will be qualified to take the National Registry Certification exam. Upon certification, students can then apply for positions with local emergency services, industry employers and hospitals as an EMT. Also, certification as an EMT will also allow for entrance into CTC’s Advanced EMT/Paramedic (AEMT) programs.

The EMT course is approved by the Texas Department of State Health Services. Program information packets are available at the CTC Nursing Center (Bldg. 155), second floor, or online at http://www.ctcd.edu/academics/instructional-departments/emergency-medical-technology/.
