Become an EMT in 18 Days

About the EMT Boot Camp Program

Prepare For Your Future! National EMS Institute’s scenario based EMT Boot Camp Program will prepare you to provide emergency medical care to victims of accidents and sudden illness. Students will develop skills in symptom recognition, emergency care procedures and techniques considered to be within the responsibilities of an EMT. Emergency Medical Technicians provide routine and emergency medical care with an ambulance service. Ambulances are not the only place you will find EMT’s. They are also authorized to work in hospitals and on Fire Departments! Becoming an EMT is the first step towards becoming a Paramedic.

Our EMT Boot Camp program runs Monday-Friday from 9AM-5PM for our traditional 18 Day course. The EMT Boot Camp is a fast-paced, hands on program that covers the entire EMT curriculum in 18 days or less. The smaller class size allows you maximum practice time with our experienced instructors. Our program consists of 140 hours of classroom and skill training, and the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational opportunities. This program exceeds the US DOT/DPH/OEMS guidelines.

Additional Certificates

Upon completion of our course you will receive 5 additional certifications on your Course Completion Certificate. Those 5 certifications are:

  • CPR (HeartCode BLS)- This course for healthcare professionals teaches you to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR to victims of all ages, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
  • Glucometer- This medical device is used to determine the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood. EMT’s will use this information to draw a small drop of blood, obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet, then placed on a disposable test strip that the meter reads and uses to calculate the blood glucose level.
  • BLS Advanced Airway/Intubation Assistance- This lifesaving procedure helps unconscious patient’s breath. You, as a student will learn how to perform an tracheal intubation.
  • Bloodborne Pathogens- Bloodborne Pathogen training addresses the federal OSHA “Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens” standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) which prescribes safeguards to protect workers against the health hazards from exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials and to reduce their risk from this exposure.
  • Narcan Training- When a person is overdosing on an opioid, breathing can slow down or stop and it can very hard to wake them from this state. Narcan™ is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose.
  • Nebulizer- is a drug delivery device used to administer medication in the form of a mist inhaled into the lungs. These are commonly used for the treatment of cystic fibrosis, asthma, COPD and other respiratory diseases.
