The EMT is a link from the scene to the emergency health care system. 

This course integrates knowledge of the EMS systems, safety/well-being of the EMT, and medical, legal, and ethical issues, which is intended to improve the health of EMS personnel, patients, and the community.

The State Office of EMS is pleased to announce the official rollout of the 2019 Scope of Practice EMT -1 Transition Course. The course has been designed to be flexible and accommodate a variety of learning styles and time constraints.  The course has been divided into 2 parts, which include a didactic portion and psychomotor skills portion. Providers that wish to accomplish the didactic portion of the course by taking the self-paced state sponsored online Moodle course will still have to accomplish the psychomotor portion.   Upon successful completion of both portions of the EMT-1 Transition these additional skills and medications will be considered part of your allowable scope of practice if authorized by your medical director and department’s standing orders.
