CCH Becoming an EMT Class in Gillette Wyoming EMS ProsEmergency Medical Technician (EMT) Basic Course

The EMT Basic course offers a rigorous approach to emergency or pre-hospital care.

EMTs respond to 911 calls for emergency medical assistance to provide efficient and immediate care to the critically ill and injured, and to transport the patient to a medical facility. EMTs also help provide first-aid treatment or life support care to sick or injured patients. Read more about what it's like to be an EMT at CCH here

The course follows the State of Wyoming Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) guidelines for certification as an EMT. Successful completion of the course also leads to certification by the American Heart Association in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care.

Because state licensure is required for you to operate in this capacity, you cannot have a criminal record i.e. violations on your driving record or conviction of crimes against people. If you have any questions about your ability to be licensed please contact the OEMS office at 888-228-8996; CCH cannot help determine licensing.

Requirements will be a GED or High School Diploma. Must be at least 18 years of age at completion of the course. In additional to classroom work you will be required to do 36 hours of Emergency Medical Services ride time, and 36 hours of Emergency Department clinical time.
