Emergency Medical Technician- Intermediate CAS

An Emergency Medical Technician – Intermediate (EMT-I) through performance of patient assessments and provision of emergency medical care, strives to meet the goals of preventing and reducing mortality and morbidity due to illness and injury. Paramedics primarily provide care to emergency patients in an out-of-hospital setting. The EMTI program prepares the graduate for a career as a certified EMT-Intermediate. A graduate of the EMTI program is a highly skilled, health care provider.

The curriculum includes a balance of EMTI and college level courses. The EMTI courses are designed to assist the student to maintain high-quality patient care. The graduate will be able to recognize, assess, and manage medical emergencies of acutely ill or injured persons in any pre-hospital settings along with administering emergency medications, performing advanced airway management, obtaining and reading electrocardiographs, and introducing intravenous lines. EMT Intermediates are responsible and accountable to medical direction, the public, and their peers. EMT Intermediates work in the field under the direction of a physician through written standing orders and radio communications.

Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the National Registry of Emergency Technicians-Intermediate certification exam. A student completing the program will have the potential for employment as a EMT Intermediate in a pre-hospital or hospital setting.
