Valley VFD

Public Service Training – Clarksburg will be conducting a blended learning course for initial Emergency Medical Technician, starting 9/26/2020.  This blended – learning Emergency Medical Technician course will cover the content and skills necessary for students to sit for the practical skills and cognitive examinations for EMT certification. If you are a self-motivated, goal oriented student who enjoys being challenged, then this is a great educational opportunity. If you are looking for an easy route to EMT Certification, then this course is NOT for you.  Students must have a personal e-mail account, computer, and high speed internet access.

The in person class meetings will be held at Valley VFD (Marion County) on the following dates: September 26; October 3, 24; November 7, 28; and December 5, 19, 20, 2020.  These in person sessions will begin at 8:30am and run to 4:30pm.  The course instructor is Chris Battlo.  Some in person video conferencing meetings may be scheduled at the discretion of the instructor and/or upon the request of students.

The tuition fee, first NREMT testing fee, textbook, and Navigate Learning Management System access will be covered (for WV Residents only) for this class by Jobs and Hope grant funding.  Student will be responsible for WV State Certification fees.

In addition to the online assignments and in person class sessions, the course requires a clinical component to be completed outside of class hours during which you will ride along with an EMS agency to complete 10 patient assessments. These assessments must be completed in order to obtain WV certification as an EMT.  You will receive more information on the clinical component during the class.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be eligible to sit for the National Registry of EMTs exam, with the initial exam attempt, as mentioned above, being included within the course tuition.  This test will be scheduled at your convenience at a Pearson Vue testing center.  If seeking certification in a state other than WV, you will not need to complete the WV certification process/fees, and will simply need to pass practical testing and NREMT examination before proceeding with the certification process in your desired state.

If seeking certification in West Virginia at the conclusion of the course, the West Virginia Office of EMS requires a $75 fee for certification which is paid online, and a $45 fee for fingerprinting/criminal background check. You will receive directions on that process during the class.

Pre- registration for this class is required. Due to COVID 19 safety best practices, class size is limited to 15 students.  Absence allowance is 10% of the total in person class hours.  Make up of missed classes will be at the discretion of the course instructor.
