Emergency Medical Services provide a vital link between the patient and the emergency room. These personnel become the “eyes and ears” for the physician, rapidly assessing and administering appropriate care and maintaining communications with the emergency facility. The
EMT-Basic courses provide a basic medical background in pre-hospital emergency medicine.
The EMT-Intermediate courses provide advanced skills that build on the EMT-Basic courses including trauma management, patient assessment and airway management. The EMT-Paramedic provides further advanced skills including cardiology and pharmacology. Upon successful completion of each program, the graduate will be eligible to take the National Registry EMT examination which credentials the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-B, EMT-I, EMT-P).
The Emergency Medical Services field offers a vast range of opportunities in the medical profession.
Emergency Medical Services are used by ambulance providers, fire-rescue, hospitals, industry, military, voluntary services, nursing homes, sport organizations, and other recreational entities.
The Vernon College Emergency Medical Services program is accredited by the Texas Department of State Health Services. Standards and curriculum have been established by the U.S. Department of
Transportation and the National Highway Administration and are incorporated into the program.
