Emergency Medical Technician

Begin a life-changing career in a quickly-growing field with the Emergency Medical Technician program at Moraine Park.

  • This program requires all students to train at off-site agencies – external to the College. As such, students must remain compliant with both the criminal background and healthcare requirements. Falling out of compliance may prevent students from progressing in or result in administrative removal from the program.
  • Health requirements are subject to change based on external agency requirements.
  • A full list of health requirements for this program is available from your academic advisor or by contacting the Student Health Record Representative at drhoads1@morainepark.edu.

Prepare to work as an entry-level EMS Professional in Wisconsin with the Emergency Medical Technician program. EMTs respond to emergencies and transport patients to appropriate care facilities. Working as an EMT, you’ll respond to a number of situations ranging from vehicle crashes, heart attacks, childbirths to gunshot wounds.

What You’ll Learn

This technical diploma prepares students to assess and treat health related emergencies, check a scene for hazards, and care for injured patients. Completion of the EMT course allows students to sit for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians cognitive examination and State practical examination, which qualify the students for Wisconsin EMT licensure.

Students accepted into the Emergency Medical Technician program must complete health requirements and a criminal background check. Students must be 18 years of age to be eligible for licensure.
