How do I know which certification I need?
This varies depending upon why you are taking the course and thus we always suggest people check with their affiliation to ensure they are clear about the particular certification required. Our BASIC LEVEL courses fulfill most requirements for industry first aid response, childcare licensing, elementary and secondary coaching positions, the Department of Education requirements in NH for school staff, and many others. Our PROFESSIONAL LEVEL courses, EMT, First Responder, and Wilderness First Aid certifications satisfy a variety of requirements for organizations such as camps, ski patrols, licensed EMS squads and other First Response organizations. In addition, these programs are most worthwhile for anyone wanting more knowledge and skills so as to better be able to help others.

A certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), is a person fully capable of assessing and treating emergency medical conditions, having obtained a wealth of knowledge and skills provided during this training. Therefore, it is not uncommon for EMTs to work in:
- Hospitals and other medical facilities
- Volunteer Ambulance Services
- Private Ambulance Companies
- Remote Medical Companies
- Event Standbys
- Private Industry
What are your EMT program entry requirements:
Minimum age: Participants must be 18 years old in order to sit for either the “written” or “skills” portions of the EMT certifying exams, which should be taken very shortly after the completion of these programs. Therefore, we recommend participants are very close to that age when beginning the course. We would be happy to discuss individual concerns further… just get in touch!
Technology: Regular access to email, a reliable computer with high speed internet, and an available printer are all necessary, as there is much online work included in this program.
Medical documentation (to be submitted within the first few weeks of class):
- Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR): Proof of MMR vaccine within the last 8 years, or a positive blood test for existing immunity.
- Tetanus (DT, DPT or TD): Immunization must be within the last 7-10 years.
- Hepatitis B vaccine series: Documentation showing that the Hepatitis B series of immunizations (total of three doses) has begun, at a minimum, or documentation showing a positive Hepatitis B blood test.
- Recent Flu Shot: Strongly recommended during flu season, although not typically required.
- TB skin test (PPD, Mantoux): Documentation of “two-step” skin tests performed within 1 year of the beginning of Clinical Time (“Ride-Alongs”). People with a history of positive PPD must provide documentation of a clear chest x-rays with physician clearance to participate.
- Chicken Pox (Varicella): Documentation of disease history or varicella vaccine, or a positive blood test for immunity.
Personal Liability & Health Insurance: If a course participant is not affiliated with a department/squad, and/or, not covered by their insurance policies, the individual must have their own insurance. Contact us for suggestions if needed.
Academic prerequisites: A background in anatomy/physiology is very helpful. CPR certification is NOT required to enroll as this is included in our EMT class curriculum.
