Program Overview

The Co-Lin Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program trains individuals to respond in emergency situations, provide basic medical services, and safely transport patients who are in need of more specialized care. Training is both mentally and physically challenging in order to prepare individuals for the unique and demanding environment in which EMT personnel function. This training course will require mental and physical stamina.
