Emergency Medical Responder
- 30 hour course
- Weekly Meetings (usually Wednesday’s from 6:00-10:00pm*) starting the end of September through November.
- Learn how to treat trauma and medical emergencies, preform CPR, splint limbs, and spine imobilization.
- A multiple choice state exam given on-location, plus a hands-on practical.
We recommend this course to everyone. In particular, this is a good course to take if you would like to learn basic First Aid and CPR for every day emergency preparedness. We also recommend this course if you would like to get a brief, broad knowledge of pre-hospital care before continuing on with your medical training (as an EMT, RN, etc).
Emergency Medical Technician
- 130 hour course
- 2 times a week (either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday*) and every other Saturday morning during the spring semester.
- To become an EMT, you must attend every class, pass the state practical exam (held on-location), and then take a written exam at a state sponsored test center.
- The EMT course counts for a 1/12 physical education credit at WPI.
This is a great certification for those who are looking to get a lot of patient care experience in preparation for applying to a medical program. This would be also be a great course for those who wish to get out from behind the desk and work in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment.
*Note: the cost and dates of courses may change year-to-year
