Program description:

Emergency Medical Technician (4 year certification)

The Emergency Medical Technician course is designed to provide training to prepare an individual to function independently in a medical emergency. This course provides the basic knowledge and skills needed to provide basic life support (BLS) care and is required to progress to more advanced levels of pre-hospital patient care.

The course requires a minimum of 144 hours of classroom and skills instruction and 10 hours of Clinical/Field rotations for a total of 154 hours of training.

Certification requires successful completion of a Virginia practical skills examination. And the National Registry written examination. This course is designed to train individuals to serve as a vital link in the chain of the health care team.

This includes all skills necessary to provide emergency medical care as an attendant-in-charge with a basic life support ambulance service or other specialized rescue service.

Upon successful completion of the training program, the student will be capable of performing the following functions:

(1) Recognize the nature and seriousness of the patient’s condition or extent of injury to assess requirements for emergency care.

(2) Administer appropriate emergency care to stabilize the patient’s condition.

(3) Lift, move, position and otherwise handle the patient in a way as to minimize discomfort and further injury.

The EMT curriculum will be based upon the National EMS Education Standards. The EMS Education Standards will replace the National Standard Curriculum (NSC) for all levels of EMS.

Virginia has developed the “Virginia Education Standards” based primarily on the National Education Standards. All instruction of initial basic EMS programs will transition from the NSC to the new EMS Education Standards.

A Laptop or Computer Access is required during this course to complete assignments. State Practical Examinations are conducted off site by Virginia Regional EMS Councils.

I can answer that however we have only had 1 class take the NREMT under the new curriculum and they did it with 100% pass rate. However as I said we have only had the one class take NREMT since we stopped teaching over one year ago.

P.S. it was 10 students
