EMT program accepting applications through June 30

PALATKA - St. Johns River State College will accept applications for the Emergency Medical Technician program through June 30.  The program is designed to prepare students to perform at the basic pre-hospital EMT level and treat various medical/trauma conditions.  Classes will be held on the Palatka campus beginning in August.   Although some of the coursework is completed online, the course will be primarily completed with classroom work and field experiences.  

Students who complete the semester-long program will earn a college credit certificate. The program prepares students for certification as EMTs in accordance with Chapter 64J of the Florida Administrative Code, the initial level for a career in emergency medical services and the primary prerequisite for paramedic training and certification. The program articulates into SJR State’s Paramedic program as well as the Associate in Science degree in Emergency Medical Services.
