About the Course

Our exciting, yet demanding course will be taught through didactic lecture and hands on demonstration and practical application settings. Reading assignments and online training will be part of this program. The EMT-B candidate must maintain a grade point average of eighty percent of better in order to take the Training Program final written exam. Candidates who successfully complete the written exam will then be recommended to take the NREMT psychomotor skills testing. Candidates who successfully complete the National Registry practical (psychomotor) skills stations and have successfully complete both testing phases will be required to schedule for the National Registry of EMT’s (NREMT) Basic written exam through (Pearson Vue) testing center. Candidates will need to be competent in their skills and knowledge and will we evaluated throughout the program.

Specific topics include: EMS preparatory, airway maintenance, patient assessment, management of trauma patients, management of medical patients, treating infants and children, and various EMS operations. The course is based on the NHTSA national Emergency Services Education Standards.  

As we spend time in discussions, class lectures and implementing those tools through practice, the students will become knowledgeable, confident and competent. These techniques will help the student prepare for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician (NREMT) and State of Utah Bureau of Emergency Medical Services (BEMS) exams.

Upon recommendation and successful completion of all requirements, students become eligible to be licensed as an Emergency Medical Technician through the State of Utah and NREMT. NREMT Certification is renewed every 2 years. Utah Bureau of EMS Licensure is renewed every 4 years.

COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT - KCI EMT TRAINING

We’re facing an unprecedented time. Our families, businesses and communities are all being affected by the coronavirus. Together, we will get through this and I wanted to update you on the measures that KCI EMT Training is taking to ensure continuity of EMS Training service while protecting our customers, partners and team members as COVID-19 runs its course.

KCI EMT Trainings operations and services will not be impacted by COVID-19. As a precautionary measure, all KCI EMT Training team instructors have transitioned to working from home through at least the end of April. Our teams are being asked to work with students through digital channels as much as possible. This means we’re adhering to cancellations and postponing in-person classroom trainings and all skills practices, until we can assure the health and safety of our students, staff and community. Our workforce is already very diverse geographically, well-equipped and digital. Expect no disruption in service.
