The deadline to apply for a spring EMT course offered through Montana State University's Extended University has been extended until Dec. 18.

The basic course for emergency medical technicians will be taught from 6:30-10 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Jan. 14 through April 29. 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 $700 for non-credit students. This course can also be taken for academic credit at an additional charge of $190.

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 and students who apply will interview in person or on the phone with the instructor, John Alston, EMT-B.
