Noncredit EMS course begins Jan. 22

WKU Career & Workforce Development will offer a noncredit Emergency Medical Services (EMS) training beginning in January. EMT Basic will be offered through a partnership with the Kentucky Emergency Medical Services Academy (KEMSA). KEMSA supports and provides high quality standardized education, training and continuing education opportunities for EMS personnel throughout Kentucky and the surrounding area.

Classroom, laboratory and field experience prepare EMS professionals to make quick decisions. EMT Basic training provides the experience and knowledge to recognize symptoms of illness and injury and provide emergency medical care. Students must have a sincere desire to work with people and be empathetic to the needs of the sick and injured.

EMT Basic will be offered Jan. 22-May 10 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays on the WKU main campus in the Academic Complex, room 217. The program fee is $750, and an initial payment is due by Jan. 9.
