The primary focus of the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is to provide basic emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. This individual possesses the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance. The Emergency Medical Technician is a link from the scene to the emergency health care system.

Upon successful course completion, the EMT student will receive a certificate from Mineral Area College.  The student will be eligible to sit for National Registry of EMT’s (NREMT) testing (written and practical).  Upon successful completion of NREMT testing, the student will be nationally registered as an Emergency Medical Technician.  At that time, the student will be eligible for a state license as an Emergency Medical Technician.
