11-Day EMT Boot Camp Graduates at Tri-County Community College

Six students made it through an intensive, fast-track continuing education course leading to a state-recognized Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification. The 11-Day EMT Boot Camp included both online and traditional training and instruction.

The start of the course featured a 70-hour online component. Students also met face-to-face for 11 ten-hour days.

“Combining the online component with the rigorous 11-Day Boot Camp allows our students to receive full EMT training in an accelerated time-frame,” said TCCC Coordinator of Emergency Medical Training Jeff Ledford. The students learned topics related to basic emergency medical care, including preparatory, airway, patient assessment, medical emergencies, trauma, infants and children, and operations.

This course follows guidelines established by the NC Office of EMS. Students must have a high school diploma or its equivalent; and have successfully completed an entrance exam assessing basic reading comprehension skills at a minimum at the tenth grade level. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve North Carolina State or National Registry EMT certification.
