Halifax Community College (HCC) will offer an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Basic class beginning Tuesday, Nov. 2. The class will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30-10 p.m. and Thursdays from 6-10 p.m. at the McPherson Center in Littleton. Some Saturday classes will be required. The textbook, “AAOS Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured,” 9th edition and its workbook are required.


Students will also register in an EMT-Basic Online Supplement class. The class consists of 11 modules with five hours of material each. This accompanies the classroom section.


The third section of the course consists of 24 hours of clinical training on an ambulance.


Students must take a reading placement test in order to register for EMT-Basic. Students who do not score at the 12th grade level may enroll in the Learning Lab in Building 500 free of charge and will be allowed to re-test only on completion of 15 hours of remediation.
