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).
Westfield State University also offers a Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) class through the American Heart Association that will certify students at the Healthcare Provider Level. We also periodically offer EMT Continuing Education classes for those who need CEUs for EMT recertification.
