Emergency Medical Technician
The EMT/Paramedic program at EOC Technology Center trains students to work in the Oklahoma Emergency Medical Services. EMT’s administer emergency care and medication to trauma victims and those who suffer sudden illness and attacks. EMT’s work with victims at the scene and during transportation to hospitals. EMT’s usually function in teams of two and may be members of hospital emergency departments, intensive or coronary care units, rescue squads or volunteer departments.
College credit is available through Rose State College and OSU Oklahoma City during each level of training. A representative from each college will visit your class and arrange this. Proof of High School Diploma or GED is required to obtain college credit. A TABE Reading Test will be required before taking the EMT Courses.

Costs not included are black or blue EMT pants, black boots or shoes (uniform costs range from $50-$200 depending on where you buy them.), OSBI background check ($19), Group One background check ($45) and immunizations (Immunization costs can be as low as $10 to update a single TB test but can range up to $390 depending on what immunizations/shots you have already received and where you go to obtain any shots you lack.)
