Thank you for your interest in our EMT program. Because there is so much uncertainty regarding the type of instruction we would be able to offer due to COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel the fall and winter offerings of our EMT course. We are hopeful that we will be able to offer EMT training in the fall of 2021.
