Emergency Medical Technology


The Emergency Medical Technology course will be divided into two courses, EMT and Advanced EMT. The Advanced EMT course is a new course based on the National EMS Standards adopted by the State of TN. The primary focus of the advanced course is to train the EMT in providing basic and limited advanced medical care for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. The Advanced course adds to the knowledge learned in the EMT course and includes IV administration, and other advanced skills the EMT cannot perform. The Advanced course is necessary if you desire to seek employment with an Ambulance service within the state of Tennessee.
