Being prepared in case of emergency is extremely important. With this as a priority, ELVPHD works with Northeast Community College to offer a course in basic Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) skills.
This course is designed to teach students how to provide emergency medical care at a basic life-support level as part of an ambulance team or other specialized service. After the completion of the course, students are eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician exam to obtain a Nebraska Certificate of Competency to practice in the state.
“This course is designed to teach students how to provide emergency medical care at a basic life-support level as part of an ambulance team or other specialized service.”
Once students have become nationally registered and have earned their Nebraska license for EMT-B, they are eligible to become a paramedic and provide pre-hospital, advanced medical and trauma care. Paramedics provide emergency, on-scene treatment, crisis intervention, life-saving stabilization and transportation of ill or injured patients to emergency facilities. Program participants must be 18 years of age or older or have parental/guardian consent, must be currently certified in Healthcare Provider CPR, and have proof of current immunizations.
