EMT Course Scheduled in Mid-August at Four Sites in Area

An Emergency Medical Technician course, beginning the week of Aug. 14, will be offered at four locations by Workforce Development & Continuing Education at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The course meets National Emergency Medical Services Educational Standards and Instructional Guidelines and is intended to prepare students for National Registry cognitive and psychomotor examinations at the EMT level.

The course comprises 50 hours of lecture and 100 hours of practical learning. Students will select one of four sites: Penn College’s main campus, Penn College at Wellsboro, the Clinton County Department of Emergency Services or Evangelical Community Hospital in Lewisburg.

The in-class portion will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays (Evangelical), Tuesdays and Thursdays (Williamsport and Clinton County) and Mondays and Thursdays (Wellsboro).

Content will be delivered through a “flipped” mastery learning model that employs Internet-based, streaming-video education. Students will watch videos that support comprehension and reinforce key concepts.

Face-to-face learning includes case studies and skill drills to apply students’ understanding through hands-on activities. Experiential learning during ambulance rotations affords “real-world” immersion into the environment of practice.

Seating is limited, and the registration deadline is 1 p.m. July 24.
