As an Emergency Medical Technician has three different levels and you are embarking on the basic level. Emergency Medical Technician- Basic or {EMT-B} you will learn how to treat the sick and injured patient. Upon successful completion of the course you will be able to take the National Registry EMT exam.

The course is a 140 hour minimum course but will more than likely take 160 hrs. There will be some week-end classes. In conjunction with the EMT training, students will also receive municipal firefighting training and be eligible for a municipal firefighting certification upon completion of the course. Classes will be from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on White Days. Classes will be held at the Houlton Fire Station except for an occasional Thursday which will be held at the Region 2 School of Applied Technology building. Parking will be in the back of the fire station and ALL students will need to be reminded that this is a working fire station. Snow days or any cancelations will be done through Region 2.

Region 2 requires an OSHA, {Occupational Safety and Health Administration}; class which is done on line and a certificate and card is issued at the end of the training. When you get the certificate you must present that certificate to one of the instructors before you will be able to sit for the final exam.

This course is being sponsored by Region 2 School of Applied Technology, Region 5 Emergency Medical Services, and Houlton Fire & Ambulance. We will follow the National Standard Curriculum for Emergency Medical Technicians and the Maine Emergency Medical Services protocols.




This course meets from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm for 36 weeks.


This course is held at Houlton Fire Station in room Conference Room.
