The Web-Assisted-Hybrid Program for EMT
The program runs synchronously with the scheduled classroom program. All assignments and deadlines are the same.
In this program students complete didactic work online. This includes videos, Power Points, handouts, textbook and workbook assignments and quizzes.

Physical attendance in the classroom is required to complete lab / practical skills, the Mid-term exam and the Final exam. Attendance is approximately 11 times throughout the 4-month program on a Tuesday or Thursday evening class from 6:00pm to 9:30pm.

Students are encouraged to attend classroom courses whenever possible to have the added benefit of instructor led learning.
Students must complete 10 hours and 10 assessments in a clinical setting. This is done in the pre-hospital environment in an agency or department that is contracted with our program. Most of the agencies are within a 60-mile radius of our Lucas location. If you are considering enrolling in the online program, please keep this in mind. It is common to require more than 10 hours to complete all 10 assessments and as a web-assisted-hybrid student you will be required to drive to the clinical location(s).
