EMT Course

Our Emergency Medical Technician course is designed to teach the knowledge and skills pertinent to providing emergency care in the field as an EMT.


WAAS will be offering a blended (online + in-person) class for those wishing to pursue their Emergency Medical Technician certification.

EXPECTATIONS

  • You will attend ALL skills lab sessions
  • You will login to MyBRADY a minimum of 3x/week
  • You will submit all required assignments prior to participating in that week’s skills lab.
