EMT Course Fills Area Need

EMT training, crashLives often depend on the prompt response and expert care of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics.  Southeast Colorado ambulance services are in need of qualified EMTs to cover emergency calls.  To assist in narrowing this gap, Lamar Community College will once again be offering an introductory Emergency Medical Technician course this spring.

Any individuals interested in helping others and providing a vital service to the community are encouraged to apply.  This is a great opportunity for current EMT volunteers and those working for Emergency Service agencies to gain valuable skills and knowledge that will directly benefit their work.  And now, with generous assistance from a Daniels Fund Boundless Opportunity Scholarship grant,  Kaiser Permanente, and private contributions,  individuals can complete LCC’s EMT certificate at little or no cost to the participant if they complete the coursework successfully.

Spring Emergency Medical Technician courses will be held in two locations: Lamar and Holly.  The classes will meet every Monday, Tuesday, andThursday night from 6:00 to 9:30pm in each location, starting January 12.

EMS students must have a high school diploma or GED.  High school seniors are eligible to enroll in the course but must graduate and turn 18 years of age before they are eligible to sit for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians Basic exam.

For more information or to register, call Brandon Sherwood 719.336.1629 or email ems@lamarcc.edu.
