It’s an amazing thing — to be trained to save another person’s life or to be able to assist. Those types of skills will be what you’ll learn in our entry-level Emergency Medical Technician Career Services Certificate. You’ll learn the basics of life support through the Virginia Emergency Medical Services (EMS) infrastructure.
At the end of the program, you will be eligible for National Registry testing and certification in Virginia.
The EMT program here at RCC lasts two semesters, and can be completed with a minimum of 12 credits. You’ll be tested in both the classroom and with hands-on activities inside and in the field.
