Emergency Medical Technician: Basic (EMT-B) Course
This course is the required course for any person seeking to become a Massachusetts State certified Emergency Medical Technician - Basic (EMT-B). The course is based on the Department of Transportation's (DOT) 1994 EMT-Basic curriculum. This course is over 120 hours in length and consists of both lecture and practical sessions. The material covered in this course is divided into 7 categories. They are: Introduction to EMS, Airway Management, Patient Assessment, Medical Emergencies, Trauma Emergencies, Infants and Children and EMS Operations.

The basic training program for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) has an overall objective to improve the quality of pre-hospital emergency care rendered to victims of accidents and sudden illness. As such, the course develops skills in symptom recognition and in all emergency care procedures and techniques currently considered to be within the responsibilities of an EMT providing emergency medical care with an ambulance service.

The course consists of 33 lessons involving classroom and field training, plus hospital observation and training. These specified training times are minimal; actual training time (including clinical experiences) is expected to range from the minimum of 110 hours to 150 hours or more depending on individual sponsor requirements and student needs. The curriculum follows the Federal Department of Transportation guidelines and is taught by qualified instructors. CMTI will provide textbooks to all registered students.

No prior experience or training is required of the course applicant. The applicant, in order to be eligible for the State EMT certification examination must:
• be able to read, understand and communicate in English
• be 18 years of age*
• be free from addiction to alcohol or any drug
• be able to lift and carry 125 pounds, and
• be free from any physical or mental defect or disease which might impair his/her ability to provide emergency care within the scope of the EMTs training and responsibilities, or which might jeopardize the health of another member of the class.

*Students must be 17 years or older to register, but must be 18 years old to take the certification exam.
