This course includes three sub-courses; the classroom, the labs, and the clinicals in both the hospital environment as well as on the ambulances.
From EMT you continue the educational process into Paramedic which takes the better part of a year.
Completion of these courses allows the graduate to challenge the National Registry exam for EMT (in Florida) and the State Certification Exam for Paramedic.
