There are three sessions available for this program. We offer a Monday/Wednesday evening class (6pm-9pm) as well as a Tuesday/Thursday evening (6pm-9pm) class. These sessions start in July and last for about 9½ months. We also offer an accelerated weekend session that meets on Friday evenings (6pm-9pm) and Saturdays (8am-3pm). This session lasts about 6 months and begins in late August.
Classes will be held in the training room of MTSU's University College at 855 West College Street in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The textbooks and liability are included in the price of the course. Uniform shirts and pants must be purchased by the student. Please do not purchase uniforms until instructors give the specifications. A drug screen and a background check will be REQUIRED before beginning clinical rotations. You will be given instructions on where to have this done on the first night of class. These will be done at the expense of the student. You must have a valid driver's license before beginning clinical rotations.
Students who successfully complete the course will be eligible to take the State of Tennessee EMT certification exam. In order to be eligible to take the State of Tennessee EMT certification exam, you must not have any felony or misdemeanor convictions. A second background check will be required.
The EMT program at MTSU is a non-credit program. You do NOT have to apply for admission to MTSU. This also means that you will not receive any credit toward a college diploma upon successfully completing the course. Because it is a non-credit program, traditional student financial aid (Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, Hope Scholarships, etc.) cannot be used to pay for the class.
The goal of the class is to prepare you for certification as an EMT.
Additional information about the state certification exam may be found at the State of Tennessee website: http://health.state.tn.us/ems/index.htm
This class is eligible for Montgomery GI Bill veteran's benefits. However, you must pay for the class at the time of registration and then be reimbursed by your veteran's benefits.
