NWACC's EMT - Basic program offers further knowledge and skills in basic life support such as first aid, oxygen administration, airway management, CPR, automated defibrillation, and care for wounds, fractures and other injuries.
The program consists of eight credit hours and can be accomplished in one to two semesters.
Upon successful completion of the EMT-Basic program, you will earn a certificate of proficiency and be eligible to take the National Registry EMT Certification exam.
As a certified EMT, you'll be capable of providing emergency care at the scene, en-route, or at the hospital and deal with injury and illness that result from such emergencies.
When emergencies and accidents happen, highly-trained emergency medical services professionals are on the scene and ready to assist and save lives. Become a paramedic and be part of the adrenaline-filled team that works together to perform emergency care procedures and advanced life support.
Advanced life support includes intravenous therapy, invasive airway management such as endotracheal intubation, and chricothyrotomy, administration of life-saving medication, cardiac monitor, defibrillation, and emergency pacing of the heart.
