Emergency Medical Technicians provide out of hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. EMTs have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life-threatening emergencies.

Our EMT classes include National Registry Skills Testing and externship placement with our sister company, NORCAL Ambulance. No previous healthcare experience is necessary to enter our training courses. Imagine, starting an exciting new career in just a few months. Call us to learn more at 800-483-3615.
