EMT Original

The goal of the St. John’s University Emergency Medical Services Institute Emergency Medical Technician Original Certification Course is to produce competent, entry level EMT's to serve in career and volunteer positions within the State of New York.

At the completion of the course, the graduate will be able to:

  • demonstrate the ability to comprehend, apply, and evaluate the clinical information relative to the role of an entry level EMT
  • demonstrate technical proficiency in all skills necessary to fulfill the role of an entry level EMT and
  • demonstrate personal behaviors consistent with professional and employer expectations for the entry level EMT

The Emergency Medical Technician  (EMT) program is 224 hours. The course is broken down into three parts: lecture, lab skills, and clinical rotations.

All our EMS programs now use interactive on-line learning allowing the student to be able to take quizzes and exams at their leisure and in their home or using our computer center located at the Dr. Bartilucci Center. Students are required to have computer access for all our courses.

This is a very demanding training program. Successful completion will lead to a New York State Certification as an EMT. The EMT Certification is valid for three years. As an EMT, you will be able to work in a variety of places. Most graduates work on either 911 ambulances or proprietary ambulances. There are some hospitals that employee EMT in the emergency room. This training is a excellent foundation on which to build a career in medicine.
