Our EMT course is a blend of independent study and instructor guided learning. The 396 hour classroom work is structured to train personnel, through lecture and lab practice, to work as a member of the EMS community. Students are expected to complete both pre-study and home-study throughout the course as required.
The Alberta Health and Safety Training Institute’s EMT Full-Time Program of Study classroom sessions run for 12 weeks on a 4 days on and 4 days off schedule including weekends and holidays. Following the didactic portion of the program are the Ambulance and Hospital Practicums, which are scheduled by the Institute to match students with services and preceptors in a rural setting.
Classroom topic areas are first presented by examining the theory related to a particular injury, followed by the practical aspect of emergency care for that injury. The course outline provides the order of presentation of topics to allow you to study applicable sections prior to delivery of lectures.
