EMT - Intermediate Course

The course consists of classroom and field training plus in-hospital observation and training. The curriculum follows the Federal Department of Transportation guidelines and is taught by a state approved EMT Instructor/Coordinator.

The student must successfully complete the  EMT-Intermediate course including 100% attendance. No prior experience or training is required. The applicant, in order to be eligible for the state EMT-Intermediate certification examination must:
  • be able to read, understand and communicate in English;
  • hold a valid EMT-Basic certification card
  • be 18 years of age;
  • be free from addiction to alcohol or any drug;
  • be able to lift and carry 125 pounds; and
  • be free from any physical or mental defect or disease which might impair his/her ability to provide emergency care within the scope of the EMTs training and responsibilities, or which might jeopardize the health of another member of the class.
Once an individual passes the certification exam and becomes an EMT-Intermediate, a program of continuing education must be undertaken in order to be eligible for recertification at the end of the initial certification period. EMT-Intermediate recertification periods are two years in length, after the initial certification period. Recertification requirements include, but are not limited to 28 hours of continuing education and a EMT-Basic refresher course and a 12 hour EMT-Intermediate add-on.
