Hodges Connect announces the start of a summer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program. Classes start Aug. 10 and continue for seven weeks. There are also grant opportunities that could cover the entire cost of the program, including books and materials.
“The program is built so that students can complete it in just seven weeks, which is about half the time in other programs,” said Dr. Jeff Ziomek, DPA, EMT-P, EMS Program Director. “This is a non-credit program that gives students the knowledge and training they need to advance to becoming a paramedic.”
The EMT program allows flexibility because clinical and internship requirements are scheduled for evening hours and weekends. The program is $4,500, which includes tuition and CPR Certification. There are additional costs such as the uniform and textbook.
Graduates of the EMT program earn preferred status when applying to Hodges University Associate in Science EMS/Paramedic degree.
