Initial EMT Certification

Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

A certified EMT is a person trained in emergency medical care and is capable of providing pre-hospital care. EMT training programs are often offered through various Kentucky Community Technical College System sites, Kentucky State Fire Rescue Training and other Training and Educational Institutions throughout the Commonwealth.
After completion of class, the student must sit for the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT) EMT exam. Successful completion and certification with the NREMT does not grant a license to practice as a EMT in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
