EMT courses usually take over 180 hours to complete. Those hours will be spent learning to asses patients conditions, performing CPR, dealing with blood loss including everything from bandaging wounds to caring for a patient in Shock. EMS students learn to manage respiratory problems and even how to deliver babies. There are hundreds of hours in classroom lectures and you want to be sure you take great notes during the classes and when you go home and study.
After successfully completing this class, students still need to take and pass the licensed exam for certified emergency medical technicians before they can wear the EMT Star of Life.
The EMT-Basic class includes hours in the classroom and in the field. Students are required to have a high school diploma or GED to enroll. They will learn to monitor vitals like taking a pulse and reading a blood pressure under emergency conditions, high pressure situations and even while in a moving ambulance. Many EMT's and Paramedics buy their own blood pressure cuffs, stethoscopes and even First Aid Kits to have on hand both on duty and off.
