EMT Certification

Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) classes are held at the Health Sciences Center, 1000 College Circle, Mount Laurel,​ ​NJ.​ ​

The certification includes 268 hours of combined classroom, in-hospital clinical, and field observation on an ambulance. Students can earn eight college credits. This certification is a mandated prerequisite for those wishing to advance to the Paramedic Science progr​am. B​oth ​traditional on-site and hybrid/online​ course​s​ are​ ​available​​. The traditional class meets every Monday and Thursday, 6 pm – 10 pm, ​plus​ every Saturday, 8 am – 4 pm. The hybrid course replaces the Monday/Thursday classes with online materials. All work must be completed by 5:00 PM on Friday. Hybrid students ​also ​meet every Saturday from 8 am – 4 pm.  New Jersey regulations governing EMT training mandate that you must attend every class. Options for making up missed classes are severely limited and students must consider this if schedule conflicts are known.

Students who are planning on attending EMT should have a current and valid CPR card for healthcare from the American Heart Association (AHA), American Red Cross (ARC) or National Safety Council (NSC). Please note that courses that are taught online with no practical test requirement WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
