2020 - 2021 Hybrid EMT Course Application

(Scroll to the bottom of this page to enroll in a course)

Hybrid Courses: Our hybrid courses allow for students to complete all "book work" online on their own schedule and come in for just skills sessions to learn specific skills and how to "put it all together." This format works very well for individuals who do not have the time to sit in class for an excessive amount of time and/or can learn material in a self-learn format. It is not designed for individuals who need the traditional classroom format of an instructor lecturing, although we do have tools to help that type of learner as well.

Coronavirus Update: At this time, we are not having in-person orientation sessions, so students are required to purchase an eBook option for the course. Students will then be emailed the access code and all information presented in the orientation session. If a student would like a printed textbook as well, we suggest purchasing a used copy on Amazon (Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured, 11th ed., which can be delivered direct). However, an ebook is still needed, as it contains access to our Navigate Online Course.

Note on in-person skills sessions: Given our hybrid/online format, students have not been greatly impacted by the virus, as they can continue coursework in the comfort of their own home, with all "book work" needing to be completed prior to attending skills sessions. Coursework will continue as usual and ETA staff will continue to work from home, remaining available to answer questions. Over the past several mounths, we have also re-designed the "in-class" skills portion of our course and ultimately requiring students to attend only 2 days in person. Prior to those 2 days, students will spend the equivelent of what would normally be a 4 day of skills reviewing video sessions and practicing skills at home. Certain equipment will be provided to students who are local (a splint and some bandages). Students who are not local can improvise with other material. All components of what had been our traditional boot camp skills week has been converted to short video segments for students, so there is no loss of course content moving to the alternate method, and in most cases, students are coming to class better prepared, as they are able to pause, rewind, and rewatch the video sessions if needbe to master the skill. The first day of the 2 day session involves practicing the skills and the second day is testing. to keep students safe, students will be screened upon entering the building and will be required to wear gloves and a mask whenever in the building. Students exhibiting any signs of illness, or who have been exposed to someone with the virus, will need to reschedule for a later skills session.

Course Options:  ETA is offering the following Hybrid EMT Courses. Attend only 2 to 3 days of skills sessions. Everything else done independently!


Which course should I take? All of our courses are hybrid in nature. This means that the majority of the "book work" is completed independently on your own schedule. Students do have access to instructors to answer questions or explain concepts further. For students who prefer to have information presented to them, we recommend purchases the textbook package which includes interactive lectures. All online coursework must be completed prior to attending the first day of the in-class skills week. For weekend sessions, the first 2/3 of the online coursework must be completed prior to the first weekend of skills, with the remainder due prior to the second skills weekend. How early a student begins the coursework will dictate how much time commitment it will take to complete the online coursework. Students who enroll early can have several months to get through course material. Students who join an accelerated course may have only 1 month to complete the coursework. Additional orientation sessions/start dates will be added to each course/skill session throughout the year.

You can still enroll in the course even though you do not have this certification, as long as you understand you must obtain it prior to the in-class skills sessions. You must be certified in AHA BLS Provider or ASHI Healthcare Pro or ARC CPR Professional Rescuer or another certification method accepted by PA DOH Bureau of EMS. ETA offers CPR courses separately. Check our schedule for upcoming dates and times. You must present a copy of your CPR certification at class on on the first in-class skills session.

Minimum Age: Students must be at least 16 years of age prior to the state certification exams. If you are 15 y.o. but will turn 16 by the end of the course, you can take the course.

Patient Contacts: Students must complete 10 patient contacts prior to the end of the course. This can be completed in various ways including volunteering with local ambulance companies and specialty centers. We will work with you to get the required contacts if you can not obtain them through a traditional manner. [COVID Note: During the pandemic, this requirement can be completed with simulations during the class]

Functional Job Description: In order for state certification, students must meet the minimum requirements for the functional job description of an EMT. Click here to read these requirements.

Criminal History: Students will be required to complete state registration forms and disclose any positive criminal history. A positive history will not prevent acceptance into the course, however, it may impact one's ability to obtain state certification. Authorization for certification is solely at the discretion of the PA DOH Bureau of EMS. Individuals with a positive criminal history are encouraged to contact the local Regional EMS Council for more information if this is a concern.

Certification Exams: Upon successful completion of the EMT course, student become eligible to take the state/NREMT certification exams. Pennsylvania uses the NREMT exams for its certification process. This consists of a psychomotor (skills) exam administered through the 13 regional EMS councils and the NREMT cognitive exam administered at a Pearson Vue testing site. The cost of the NREMT cognitive exam is $80 paid directly to NREMT prior to scheduling the exam. All certification exams are administered by the PA DOH Bureau of EMS and NREMT and are beyond the control of ETA. While the cognitive exam can be completed anywhere in the Country, the psychomotor exam MUST be taken in PA. Chester County administers the exam the third Saturday of each month (unless it falls on a holiday). You can register for their psychomotor exam at www.destraining.chesco.org. To determine exam dates in other areas, you will need to call individual EMS Councils. A list of councils can be found at: http://pehsc.org/resources/regional-ems-councils/. [COVID Note: During the pandemic, PA BEMS has a moratorium on the psychomotor exams and will accept the institute's final psychomotor exam results, providing you complete the NREMT cognitive exam prior to the lifting of the moratorium. In that case, you would be given a state certificate and a provisional NREMT certificate.]

HAZWOPER Certification: As a co-requisite, students must take ICS100, ICS700, and HAZWOPER. All are online and should take approximately 1-2 hours each. Links to these courses are provided within our online course. If you have certification from another agency, simply submit a copy of your certification.
