Emergency Medical Technology, Certificate

Program Code: CC.EMT

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) give immediate care to critically ill or injured people in the pre-hospital setting and provide transport to hospitals, care facilities and private residences. The ability to work under pressure in challenging environments, think critically to make difficult decisions independently and perform life-saving skills precisely are essential to success in this career. A criminal history background check, immunizations, and drug testing will be required.

EMTs in Oregon must be licensed by the state through the Oregon Health Authority’s Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Systems (OHA/EMS). National certification is available through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT). Each certification requires approved continuing education classes in emergency care for certification renewal. The CCC Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) certificate program includes the required Oregon license and national EMT certification.
