EMT PROGRAM

title-divider

An Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is an individual who is trained to respond to emergency situations and perform lifesaving techniques until a patient can be transported to a hospital or treatment facility. Many EMTs are also responsible for the safe transfer of patients, via ambulance, from the scene of an accident or sudden illness to the closest medical facility. When a person is injured or becomes ill, it rarely happens in a hospital setting or with doctors or nurses present. An EMT will provide basic life support (BLS) in a prehospital setting to all individuals during medical emergencies. The modern Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system has been developed to provide what is known as pre-hospital or out of hospital care. Its purpose is to get trained medical personnel to the scene, en route to the hospital, and at the hospital. The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is a key member of the EMS team. OMIs EMT program is 252 hours (16 weeks) of classroom labs and clinical internship. Students will utilize current course textbook, as well as the current workbook that demonstrates skills in Prehospital patient care. The EMT program consist of 130 didactic hours, 50 hours of skill labs, 36 hours of rescue/ambulance internship and 36 emergency room hours.
