The EMT Program is delivered through a combination of classroom instruction (didactic and psychomotor) and clinical experience. Upon successful completion of the coursework, students are eligible to sit for the National Registry’s written and practical examinations. Upon successful completions of examinations and other licensure requirements, the student will be eligible for the State of Tennessee EMT license. The EMT renders life support to patients at the scene of their injuries or illnesses and prepares these patients for transport to the hospital.
The Chattanooga State Paramedic program is accredited by the CAAHEP - Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (727-210-2350) upon the recommendation of the CoAEMSP - Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (214-703-8445).
