Train to Become an EMT

What are you doing in 2019? What about training to save lives as an EMT? Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) respond to emergency calls, perform medical services, and transport patients to medical facilities, caring for sick and injured people in emergency settings. People’s lives depend on their quick reactions and competent, sometimes life-saving care.  

No previous healthcare experience is necessary to enter our training courses. Check out the information below to view course prerequisites. If you have questions about how to get started, call us at American Health Education, or visit our open house on May 4.
