The Emergency Medical Technician course allows students to pursue interest in becoming an EMT, a health professional that provides emergency medical services. Students that complete this course successfully will be able to take exams for certification/licensure at the state and national levels. Once obtaining this certification, students will be able to work for any Emergency Medical service. 

This course is a dual credit partnership with Jefferson Community & Technical College (JCTC). There are currently 16 students in the program. 

“This program will help any student who is seeking further medical training, such as nursing or medical school,” says Mike Will, faculty for the Paramedic Program at JCTC. Learn more about the JCTC Paramedic Program here

The students have been attending EMS clinical rotations with Bullitt County EMS. “These clinical rotations give the students ‘real-life’ experience,” Mr. Will describes. “I have received positive feedback from both Bullitt County EMS and the students concerning these clinical rotations.”
