Lansing Community College

Basic-EMT Program Overview

The primary focus of the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is to provide basic emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. This individual possesses the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance. The Emergency Medical Technician is a link from the scene to the emergency health care system.

Please call the Health and Human Services office at 517-483-1410 if you have any questions on obtaining department approval.

A written examination offered by the National Registry of EMT's must be successfully completed for licensure. State licensing is performed through the State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Emergency Preparedness, EMS, and Systems of Care.
