Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

This 155 hour minimum program is the basic level of EMT care by the West Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services. This class meets the National Standards Curriculum.  The EMT candidate must successfully complete the program, complete required clinical time, complete the practical skills testing, and obtain a passing score on the computer-based National Registry exam. Recertification is required by National Registry every two years.

WV Public Service Training will be conducting an Emergency Medical Technician course beginning August 7, 2021 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at the WVPST Dunbar Office (501 22nd St., Dunbar, WV 25064).

Planned Meeting Dates: August 7 & 21; September 4 & 18; October 2, 16, & 30; November 13; December 4 & 18

Orientation is in person at the WVPST Dunbar Office on August 7.

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.

 Absence allowance is 10% of the total class hours = 15 hours. Make up of missed classes will be at the discretion of the course instructor.

Fee:  $300 Tuition due first night of class

Book and First Attempt at National Registry Exam will be covered through Jobs & Hope WV for WV Residents
