 Emergency Medical Technician - Basic Course




     Emergency Medical Training Services is happy to offer our local paid and volunteer EMS, Fire and Police services local EMT-Basic training. Our sister organization the Englishtown - Manalapan Training Site, has been training EMT's since the program's inception.

     Our training adheres to the 1994 U.S. Dept. of Transportation EMT-Basic National Standard Curriculum. The course consists of 120 hours of didactic (classroom & hands-on) training and 10 hours of in-hospital emergency room clinical time. Students also are offered CPR Healthcare provider training as an option through the American Heart Association. Upon successful completion of this program, students are eligible to take the National Registry of EMT's written certification examination, which if successfully completed, will grant State of New Jersey and National Registry of EMT's certification as an EMT-Basic.

     Our instructor team is comprised of local first aid and fire department members. The team is a well diverse group of people ranging from EMT state certified instructors, real estate brokers, radio disc jockeys, nurses to doctors. EMS in New Jersey is mostly volunteer, which brings a unique sense of community to our programs. Our students and instructors alike, work regular full time jobs in addition to their EMS lives. And we all bring a vast knowledge together creating one of the finest Emergency Medical Technician - Basic programs in the area.

     Our EMT-Basic course is conducted at Manalapan High School twice each year, from January through mid-April, and again from September through mid-December . Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:00pm - 11:00pm with occasional Saturday classes here and there.

     Tuition: $550.00 U.S. includes textbooks. Tuition subject to change. Qualified members of a volunteer first aid squad are not required to pay the tuition if they provide a signed New Jersey EMT Training Fund voucher.
