EMTs are usually the first health care professionals to reach patients with injuries, serious illnesses, and traumas. EMT training enables people to handle a variety of situations ranging from heart attacks to car accidents.

EMT is approximately a 204-hour classroom course with additional 24 hours clinical rotation with EMS. Two EMT courses are offered by JCC in the Spring & Fall semesters. Other courses may be scheduled during the year to meet community needs.
