EMS Academy’s Hybrid EMT Courses are designed for all students who want to add to and achieve their career paths and receive an EMT certification. This EMT course prepares students to take the Massachusetts psychomotor examination and the National Registry of EMTs written examination. Students will complete the didactic aspect of the program via distributive online program and then transition to in-person Skills Labs at our Marshfield or Cambridge College location for hands on practical skills training.
In keeping with the updated guidance from Governor Baker in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, EMS Academy is an approved Essential Business and just the same as all Essential Businesses, there are safety procedures we have in place for the safety of you, the customer, our Instructors, Teaching Assistants, Faculty and all who may come to EMS Academy.
As these EMT Courses are Hybrid, all didactic content shall be delivered using distributive, or virtual instructor led methods, to decrease the time students are in contact with others. When we do our Skills Labs throughout the course, we will be in-person for our Skills Lab Sessions!

In order to be eligible to be certified as an EMT-Basic, a person must: Be at least 18 years of age; Abstain from the abuse of drugs which impairs professional judgment and/or practice; Be free of any physical or mental impairment or disease which could reasonably be expected to impair the ability to be an EMT, or which could reasonably be expected to jeopardize the health and safety of the patient;Meet the training requirements applicable to the level of certification. Obtain National Registry of EMTs (NREMT) certification by successfully completing a Massachusetts psychomotor (practical) examination and NREMT cognitive (computer-based) examination.Once an individual obtains NREMT certification, they must apply for Massachusetts certification in order to work as an EMT-Basic in the Commonwealth.
