Monongalia EMS

This approximately 155-hour course is being conducted at Monongalia EMS in Morgantown, WV (Monongalia County) beginning Monday, August 16, 2021 at 9:00am.  Class will meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9am-5pm.  The course instructor is Chris Battlo.  Students must have access to a computer, reliable internet, and be self motivated to complete assignments and put in time studying outside of normal class hours.

The course textbook with Navigate online access, first NREMT testing fee, and FISDAP entrance and exit exam costs will all be covered for this class through a grant through the WV Jobs and Hope program.  Tuition costs for this course are being covered by Monongalia EMS, so there is no cost to the student (WV Residents only) for class.  Students will still be responsible for WV State Certification fees.

The course also 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.  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.   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.

Interested persons should register below by filling in the appropriate information.  Those students preregistered will receive an email with exact course location prior to the first class meeting.
