The EMT Basic program provides students with one semester training in the skills and knowledge necessary to provide entry level pre-hospital emergency medical care. Upon successful completion of the course, the student is eligible to test for national and state certification as an EMT Basic.
The Bossier Parish Community College EMT Paramedic program is accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Profession (CoAEMSP)/Commission for Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
Students pursuing a technical competency certification as EMT Basic must first meet College admission requirements. Students must show competency in reading as documented by ACT, placement tests or completion of the READ 099 course. The EMT Basic program includes didactic, laboratory, and field instruction. Students entering the program must meet additional requirements outlined by the Bureau of EMS and must meet all other requirements for a program with a clinical component (as listed at the beginning of this section) by the established deadline.
Upon successful completion of the EMT Basic Program, a graduate is eligible to sit for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians- EMT Basic exam and apply for State certification.
