EMT-Basic - College Certificate

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals such as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) provide pre-hospital emergency care to individuals who experience a sudden illness, injury, or trauma. They work under protocols approved by a physician medical director to recognize, assess, and manage medical emergencies and transport critically ill or injured patients to acute health care facilities such as hospitals. They are employed by hospitals, ambulance services, fire departments, police departments, and other agencies that have a public safety component as their missions. The EMS curriculum (OEEM) follows national standards and the New Mexico Joint Organization of Education (JOE) requirements.
