Hudson -- Thirteen students graduated from Hudson's emergency medical technician training class on May 9. They are now ready to take the emergency technician certification exam to become certified EMTs. The 17-week course provided through Hudson Emergency Medical Services teaches the essentials of human anatomy, life-saving methods, and emergency response. The students were tested on both theory and live-practical situations. The city's human patient simulator provided realistic training situations and helped build skills and confidence in preparation for any emergency an EMT may encounter.
The knowledge obtained during the course will allow the students to take the National Registry of Emergency Technicians Certification Exam. Upon passing the exam, they will be certified as both National Registry and State of Ohio Emergency Medical Technicians.
Many students will volunteer for Hudson EMS to put their skills to work and gain valuable experience.
Hudson EMS is a volunteer system that provides emergency medical services for the city of Hudson. The EMT training is one of the highest-rated educational programs in the state. The course is free to those who volunteer for Hudson EMS after receiving EMT certification. Those interested in becoming emergency medical technicians are invited to sign up for the fall course starting Aug. 29. Applications will be accepted after July 15.
