• Emergency Medical Technology

    Certificate

    Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) give immediate care to critically ill or injured people in the prehospital setting and provide transport to hospitals, care facilities and private residences. The ability to work under pressure in challenging environments, think critically to make difficult decisions independently and perform life-saving skills precisely are essential to success in this career. A criminal history background check, immunizations, and drug testing will be required.

    EMTs in Oregon must be certified by the state through the Department of Health and Human Services, EMS & Trauma Systems Section (DHS EMS). National certification is available through the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT). Each certification requires approved continuing education classes in emergency care for certification renewal. The CCC Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) certificate program includes the required Oregon and national EMT-Basic certification.

    Program Outcomes

    The EMT program is designed to prepare students to begin their careers in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and continue their education to the paramedic level. The EMT-Basic course prepares students to test for both national and state certification. The EMT-Intermediate course prepares candidates to test for Oregon certification.

    Careers

    Career opportunities that may require EMT training include but are not limited to: firefighter (career or volunteer), paramedic, search and rescue, critical care transport or basic life support transport provider. The EMT certificate can lead to a career as a paramedic if a student wishes to continue their studies and completes the requirements for an AAS-EMT (Associate of Applied Science - EMT) degree at an accredited institution.

    For continuing education opportunities for healthcare providers see Healthcare Professional Development (HPD) in the course description section on page 178. For information contact the EMT program director at 503-594-0696 or department at 503-594-0650.
