As the largest provider of EMT education in the state, we recognize our responsibility to maintain safety, while continuing to offer vital EMS education.
For safety purposes and to follow leadership guidelines, the school and all campuses are closed to the public until further notice. Office staff will be in the office responding to email and returning phone calls but they are available in person by appointment only.
BLS CPR Certifications are being offered via Skills Passoff session only, after completing the online course with AHA.
All other AHA and NAEMT Certification courses (ACLS, PALS, PHTLS, AMLS, etc.) are suspended for the time being. Check back here for updates. The following information is in regards to EMT and AEMT programs only.
All non-skills classroom training is now online. A Course Coordinator is available for questions and will track your progress. It is up to you, the student, to participate and keep up with online work throughout the course. There are skills practices that simply cannot be taught remotely, so small-group training sessions will be held on-campus with strict safety measures in place. We will return to class training as soon as it is determined safe to do so.
Some requirements are being waived in order to more easily facilitate the certification of EMTs in training. Fewer requirements means that it has never been easier to become an EMT. Read more and register here.
Please review the following list of questions and answers that address the current situation and what you can expect down the road.
Question: I am currently in a class, when will I complete it?
Answer: If your class was interrupted, you will continue to attend class online. Please stay current by following your syllabus. We will schedule skills training and notify you with more information. Please check your email frequently.
Question: I registered and paid for an EMT Class. Will it still happen?
Answer: All EMT and AEMT classes are starting on time. However, the class work will be completed online, including exams. If you ordered supplies, these will be provided to you in safe manner, by the time you need them. You will receive an email before class starts with further instructions.
Question: Can I still take the NREMT Cognitive exam after finishing the course?
Answer: At this point, Pearson VUE Centers are intermittently re-opening. Please check your local Pearson VUE office or pearsonvue.com for more information. We will still provide your Skills Test on campus.
Question: Will I still take a Psychomotor Exam?
Answer: Currently, EMT students will not be required to perform a Psychomotor Exam to complete the EMT program. The skills practice on campus will be sufficient. As for AEMT students, the NREMT Psychomotor Exam requirement has yet to be determined. Check back here for updates.
Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. Please follow state and federal guidelines for social distancing and maintain excellent hand hygiene. We are proud to serve our community with vital education in this time of need. Stay safe.
