What is an EMT?

The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) will enjoy the benefit of truly making a difference in a patient’s life. The EMT is an integral part of the prehospital healthcare field providing care for sick or injured patients in an emergency medical setting. People’s lives often depend on the quick reaction and competent care provided by the EMT. Equally as important is the care the EMT provides for non-emergent patients needing ambulance transport to medical appointments, treatments, etc.

Becoming an EMT is a great stepping stone to many great career opportunities. After a student certifies as an EMT, many will go on to careers in Emergency Medical Services such as the fire service, law enforcement, paramedic, nursing, physician assistant, etc.

Work with our guidance counselors to explore how EMT Academy can equip you for your career goals. Regardless of your experience or current employment, we offer a direct hire work opportunity that waives 100% of your tuition and provides for a $500 employment bonus.
