which prepares students to sit for both the Arkansas and National Registry EMT examination. Students are
required to be proficient in both cognitive and practical skills to pass this program. Students must have an ACT score of 19 in Reading and English or take the ASSET/COMPASS test in the following areas: reading 43/82, and writing 45/75. Students must complete any developmental courses prior to enrolling in the EMT course.
EMT-B’s are the entry level for pre-hospital care. This course will cover all the skills necessary for the EMT-B to provide emergency medical care at a basic life support level with an ambulance service or other specialized service.
This certification must be renewed every two years by taking an EMT-Refresher class.
