EMT Course

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health/OEMS certifies MVAEMT to provide the educational experience that leads to an EMT certification according to the National Registry Standard.

EMT is the second of four levels of Emergency Medical Technicians. The next level is Advanced EMT and then Paramedic.

Our course meets twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday nights and selected Saturdays) and runs from early January to April providing our student EMTs what they need to know to both provide quality pre-hospital care to our patients and the material needed to succeed in the National Registry EMT practical and written tests.
