NEW RIVER WILL OFFER EMT-BASIC CLASS IN SUMMERSVILLE BEGINNING JAN.13

[SUMMERSVILLE, W. VA.] New River Community and Technical College will offer an Emergency Medical Technician Basic (EMT-B) course in Summersville, W. Va., beginning Jan. 13, 2014. Classes will be held in the Workforce West Virginia building in Northside Shopping Center on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5:30-10 p.m.

The EMT-B course is designed to train the student to maintain high quality patient care. Graduates will be able to recognize, assess, and manage medical emergencies of acutely ill or injured persons in any pre-hospital settings. Students who successfully complete the EMT-B class will receive five hours of college credit and are eligible to sit for the National Registry Certification (NBREMT) exam and the West Virginia EMT-B exam.

Students must complete the EMT-B class before enrolling in the EMT-Paramedic certificate program offered at New River's campuses in Beckley, Lewisburg, Princeton and Summersville. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).

Applicants will be required to have a physical exam, current immunizations and drug and background screenings. Early application is recommended to allow time for processing of financial aid and admissions paperwork. Jan. 3 is the last day that registrations will be accepted for spring semester classes.
