An EMT instructor and student practice infant CPR technique.

The Colorado Health Department requires specific training for those who work as emergency medical technicians in emergency care situations. This program covers those requirements and prepares students for the Colorado examination.

Emergency Medical Technician program graduates are hired or serve as EMT volunteers for ambulance services, police departments, fire departments, ski patrols and search-and-rescue organizations.

The EMT program may be taken in conjunction with other course work or independently. However, because of the limited course requirements, it is not appropriate as a sole course of study for full-time students. Graduates of the program will receive a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency in Emergency Medical Technology.
