About the Program
This certificate delivers the new National EMS Educational Standards adopted by the state of Minnesota for Emergency Medical Technician education requirements. This certificate will prepare the entry-level Emergency Medical Technician for direct employment in an emergency ambulance service, basic transport service, an emergency room, police department, security department or fire department. Completion of the EMT course prepares the student for the National Registry of EMT examination. Successful completion of the National Registry exam is recognized by the State of Minnesota to generate the state certification required to work as an EMT in Minnesota.
This certificate provides a perfect exit point for the student who is not intending to continue through all stages of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Program to the paramedic level, or for currently certified paramedics desiring a credential. It formalizes successful completion of basic life support (BLS) coursework. Additionally, should the student elect to proceed with the Associate in Applied Science in Public Safety Degree, this certificate completes one of the specialty tracks.
