Below is general information about the course...............
This 222-hour course provides training for emergency calls to give care and stabilization to the critically ill and injured. Emphasis is placed on care at the scene and during transportation to a medical facility, IV maintenance, EOA, and epinephrine modules. In-depth study will also be done on patient assessment and shock physiology with fluid, intravenous therapy, and D50W administration as its focus. Actual experiences will be provided and clinical and lab times are required in addition to class time.
The textbooks are included in the price of the course. Uniform shirts and pants must be purchased before beginning the clinical portion of the course. Please do not purchase uniforms until instructors give the specifications.
Students who successfully complete the course will be eligible to take the State of Tennessee EMT certification exam.
You must have a regular high school diploma or a regular GED certificate and be at least 18 years old to attend. In order to be eligible to take the State of Tennessee EMT certification exam, you must not have any felony convictions. A background check will be required.
The EMT program at MTSU is a non-credit program. This means that you will not receive any credit toward a college diploma upon successfully completing the course. Because it is non-credit, traditional student aid (Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, Hope Scholarships, etc.) cannot be used to pay for the class. The goal of the class is to prepare you for certification as an EMT.
Classes will be held in the training room of the College of Continuing Education in the at 855 West College Street in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
