EMT Initial Training

Course Description:

Less Stress Instructional Services runs EMT certification programs in various northern and central NJ locations. Programs typically run for 1-3 months, and contain instruction necessary to prepare a student to function as an Emergency Medical Technician. After successful completion of this 190-hour program, the student is eligible to sit for the NJ EMT examination with the Department of Health. This program is professional technical training. Students will be expected to complete reading and homework assignments, attend classes, and complete all program objectives to sit for the state EMT certification exam. Some important facts about EMT training: Our classes routinely have waiting lists - it's incredibly important that you not register for the program unless you plan on being there. EMT training requires 190 hours of classroom time and hospital observation time. There are no 'sick days' or 'excused absences' in a NJ-State approved program. Missed sessions must be made up by attending other sessions - often at other training centers and at inconvenient times. Do not miss sessions needlessly. Timeliness is extremely important to this program, as there is a lot of material to cover in a limited amount of time. If you are not able to be at the course site by the course times listed above, consider registering for another program.

Course Length: 208 hours

Intended Audience: Those wishing to be certified as Emergency Medical Technicians such as aspiring EMS workers, Rescue Squad Volunteers, fire-fighters, police officers, or corporate/industrial safety workers.

Please note - Due to the nature of medical terminology and the complex concepts associated with emergency care, we have found that students are not successful unless they have a 10th grade ability to read/write/speak English. Of particular concern are individuals for whom English is a second language. Please note that it is your responsibility to self-assess your English skills. We do not refund tuition past the first day of the course, so please consider this carefully before registering for EMT class.
