Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Training
The 2014-2015 sessions of the Basic EMT classes are now open for registration. The
registration links are below.
Due to the 2013 restructuring of Emergency Medical Services classifications in the state of Tennessee, the EMT program at MTSU will now consist of two courses, a Basic EMT course and an Advanced EMT course. The Basic EMT course will take approximately 7 months to complete. A short break will then ensue to give the students who successfully finished to take and pass the National Registry exam. Proof of passing the National Registry exam must be furnished before starting the Advanced EMT course.
At this time only registrations and payments for the Basic EMT course are being accepted. Contingent upon state approval of the A-EMT course, registrations for the Advanced EMT course will be accepted in early 2015 at an anticipated cost of $799. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
Due to the limited number of slots in the classes, seats are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Full payment is due at the time of registration. Payment by credit/debit card is advised. Payment by check must be received within 5 business days of registration or your registration will be purged.
There are three sessions available for this program. A Monday/Wednesday evening class (6pm-9pm) is offered as well as a Tuesday/Thursday evening (6pm-9pm) class. These sessions start in late September and last approximately seven months. An accelerated weekend session that meets on Friday evenings (6pm-9pm) and Saturdays (8am-3pm) is also available. This session lasts about 9 months and begins in late September.
Classes will be held in the training room of MTSU's University College at 855 West College Street in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
