EMT COURSE

Want to help your neighbors? Become a volunteer in your Fire District? Make a difference in your community? Become an EMT!

Talk with your local fire district about this exciting opportunity!

You are about to embark on a 160-hour training program to prepare you to become an Emergency Medical Technician within the State of Washington. You will also be expected to study on your time outside of class. This will include reading the textbook, knowing and understanding definitions as they pertain to the training program, knowing and understanding the equipment used in emergency medicine, practicing the practical skills expected of an EMT. You will be expected to perform a field rotation with a medic unit within Mason County and a clinical rotation at Mason General Hospital.
Your personal time will need to be dedicated to the training program at the expense of your personal social life at times during the class.
By signing the application you are accepting the requirement to attend all classes on the schedule, devoting the time required for the field and clinical rotation and spending the time needed to study and practice for a successful outcome.

In trying to maintain compliance with COVID restrictions, we have raised the cost for the EMT class.  We feel this represents a worst-case scenario for the course, and we are hopeful by the class deadline, there will be an easing of these restrictions.  Should the restrictions ease before the class deadline, we will adjust the cost accordingly.
