Welcome to the El Camino College EMT program! Emergency Medical Technicians are professional medical responders that have the opportunity to help ill and injured patients in various scenes and emergency situations. EMT principles that are covered throughout this course include, but are not limited to: leadership, followership, communication, safety, situational awareness, scene size-up, problem-solving, decision making, patient assessment and professionalism. EMT students learn about the practices and procedures through lecture, skills lab, simulations, role-playing, tactical decision games and 24 hours of field experience. Students who successfully complete all 170 hours with an overall grade of 80% (B) or better will qualify to take the NREMT computerized adaptive test, and then once successfully passed, go on to become a licensed Emergency Medical Technician.
El Camino College EMT Program provides each student that successfully completes the 170-hour course with an EMT Course Completion Certificate, EMT skills verification and authorization to test with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
It is the student's responsibility to successfully pass a computer-based adaptive EMT test through the NREMT in order to receive a National EMT Certification:
