The deadline to apply for a fall EMT course offered through Montana State University's Extended University has been extended until Friday, April 19.
The basic course for emergency medical technicians will be taught 6:30-10 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Aug. 27 through Dec. 5. The course covers essential skills required of emergency medical technicians. It will prepare students for the state and national written and practical exams. Students who pass the exams will be certified to perform life-saving skills as EMTs in a pre-hospital setting.
Tuition for the course is $740 for non-credit students. The tuition for the CREDIT option is approximately $2,132.60, pending any tuition increases approved by the Board of Regents in late May.
Students must be at least 18 years old, have a high school diploma or GED equivalent and must not have been convicted of certain felony charges. Enrollment is limited. Students who apply will interview in person with the instructor, Kris Kaull, B.S., flight paramedic.
