LCCC Offers EMT Training to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Schuylkill

Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) is partnering with Lehigh Valley Health Network to bring Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Schuylkill in Pottsville, Pa.

This program is for individuals who are likely to respond to pre-hospital emergencies or those considering a medical career. Upon successful completion, the student will be eligible to test for the National Registry EMT certification. Once certified, individuals will be able to seek entry-level employment in emergency medical services. Minimum age of 16 is required.

Tuition is $1,150, which includes textbook. Additional costs include NREMT testing fee of $75, specialized equipment and clothing.

Classroom instruction and skill demonstrations, “hands-on” practical skill workshops and practical experience are presented by PA State Certified EMT instructional teams. Prior to acceptance into the EMT program, individuals must provide a physician release form, proof of health insurance, criminal and child abuse clearances and reading and math placement test scores. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in either class to attend one of the free information sessions held at LV Hospital-Schuylkill School of Nursing at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 8, or Tuesday, Aug. 15.

EMT Basic class is held Tuesdays and Thursdays, Sept. 5, 2017, through March 6, 2018, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., as well as one Saturday per month from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
