Helping Others When They Need It Most
Pursue Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training from American National University. The program highlights the basic knowledge and skills necessary for individuals who wish to obtain state or national certification as an EMT.
What do EMTs do?
- EMTs answer the call for help by delivering life-saving medical care.
- They frequently are the first responder on the scene of a rapidly unfolding, often chaotic emergency situation.
- Typically represent the difference between a patient's survival or recovery and a lessthan-desirable outcome.
An emergency situation is part of a constantly changing environment and that provides for unique experiences. An EMT is an initial entry level Emergency Medical Services position. EMTs are provided basic training for a limited scope of practice.
