EMT

Emergency Medical Technician course.

(Also including First Person on Scene Intermediate).

The emergency medical technician course is highly intensive. It is designed to give advanced first aid skills in a pre-hospital environment prior to the arrival of the emergency services.There exists a large gap between the standard 3 day First Aid at Work course and the state registered Paramedic. This course attempts to bridge that gap and is suitable for people that need greater knowledge and increased skill sets.
