Montana State University's Extended University will offer a basic course for emergency medical technicians this fall.

The EMT Basic Course will be taught 6:30-10 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Aug. 31 through Dec. 9. 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.

John Alston, EMT-B, will teach the class. Those who are interested in attending the course must be a minimum of 18 years old, have a high school diploma or GED equivalent and must not have been convicted of certain felony charges.
