Penn College to offer EMT courses

An Emergency Medical Technician course, beginning the week of Jan. 13, will be offered at four area locations by Workforce Development at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The course meets National Emergency Medical Services Educational Standards and Instructional Guidelines and is intended to prepare students for National Registry cognitive and psychomotor examinations at the EMT level.

The course comprises 50 hours of lecture and 100 hours of practical learning. Students will select one of four sites: Penn College’s main campus, Bloomsburg Volunteer Ambulance Association’s training and administration center, Penn College at Wellsboro or Evangelical Community Hospital in Lewisburg.

The in-class portion will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays (Evangelical and Wellsboro), and Tuesdays and Thursdays (Williamsport and Bloomsburg).

Content will be delivered through a “flipped” mastery learning model that uses streaming-video education online. Face-to-face learning includes case studies and skill drills to apply students’ understanding with hands-on activities.

Seating is limited, and the registration deadline is 1 p.m. Dec. 19. To register, visit https://regics.pct.edu/EMTSP20.
