about us

Founded in 2013, EMT Academy’s goal is to give EMS professionals an opportunity to learn about the newest practices in emergency medicine by educating them in the most current curriculum, technology, and protocols while encouraging them to raise the standards of pre-hospital patient care through an assortment of specialty courses.

EMT Academy offers several high intensity EMT courses throughout the year that are designed to allow bright, new EMTs to achieve their professional goals.


We work with all members of the healthcare community; from EMTs and Paramedics to first responders, physicians, and nurses. We encourage these professionals, as well as those looking to join the EMS field, to make a long-term commitment to developing skills, and engaging in an ongoing training regimen that promotes continuous quality improvement for the duration of their careers.

Our Mission and Philosophy

  

EMT Academy is dedicated to providing the highest quality education available to each student, in a safe, supportive, but challenging environment; Providing students with the proper educational tools and instructors willing to assist them in achieving their educational goals. As well as improving healthcare in culturally diverse local and global communities through, Care for the sick, Compassion for the injured, and Concern for Humanity.  EMT Academy will accomplish this mission through quality education and training to prepare our students for certification through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians according to the respective scope of practice delineated by the current National EMS Standards.


EMT Academy is committed to providing cost effective quality education to a diverse student population. This goal is accomplished by promoting opportunities for students to experience a motivating learning environment that encourages enthusiasm and pride in the EMS profession, the opportunity to obtain knowledge and develop understanding of pre hospital EMS practice, the opportunity to increase knowledge of self and others thereby encouraging personal and professional growth. Lastly promote an atmosphere that encourages students to actively participate in learning experiences needed to attain certification and to practice as an emergency medical provider to which they are certifying for.


We strive to provide the best possible environment for each student to learn the didactic material and psychomotor skills, which in turn will prepare you for certification testing. However, presenting the materials is just one facet of the total academic experience. Each student must consistently be prepared and engaged actively in the entire educational process at this institution. EMT Academy will give our students every opportunity available to ensure their success. Open communication is fundamental to your success during this program. We encourage students to discuss obstacles of any sort in a timely fashion with our staff so that we can facilitate the greatest potential for learning.
