Emergency Medical Services Training

Upcoming EMT Course at Westfield State University:


Emergency Management Technicians (EMTs) play a critical role in providing pre-hospital emergency care to victims of accidents and other illnesses.  This is the EMT basic course, which covers assessment and management of the following medical emergencies: cardiopulmonary arrest, severe bleeding and shock; fractured bones; care for heart attack, stroke, burn and poison victims; access to victims of automobile crashes and collapsed buildings; emergency childbirth, pediatrics; and various other medical, emotional, and environmental emergencies. Participants must have a valid AHA Healthcare Provider or ARC Professional Level CPR card prior to class, or register for a CPR class during the first EMT class.

This course prepares students for the Massachusetts EMT Certification.  The course is approved by the Massachusetts Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS).
