Emergency Medical Technology Associate in Applied Science

Emergency Medical Technology – Associate in Applied Science (EMMT.AAS)

The emergency medical technology program prepares students for employment as advanced emergency medical care givers. Content areas are covered in lectures; practical skills are developed in laboratory settings; and, clinical applications are divided between prehospital and hospital rotations. A 250-hour, non-paid externship experience with a local ambulance company is the capstone course for completion of the program requirement.

The curriculum meets the requirements of the Michigan Department of Michigan Department of Community Health and needs to be taken in sequence. Each course prepares the student for the respective level of the state licensing examination.

Students are evaluated in three areas: content, practical skills and clinical performance. Students achieving an 80 percent or higher will receive a certificate of completion and be eligible for the state licensure. Practical skills are graded on a pass/fail basis, and students must pass all practical exams to successfully complete each course. Clinical performance is evaluated by attendance and feedback from ambulance and hospital personnel along with the clinical facilitator. Attendance policies are regulated by the state. Upon successfully completing all college requirements, a student will qualify for an Associate in Applied Science.
