Mission Statement

The mission of the Emergency Medical Technician Program at Crowley's Ridge Technical Institute is to provide the training necessary for students to be competitive in the workforce by strengthening the basic, occupational, communication, and technical skills required to become economically self-sufficient or to use acquired training as a foundation to higher education.

Welcome to the Emergency Medical Technician Program!

This course is designed to prepare you for a career as an Emergency Medical Services provider. We provide lecture, demonstration, and practice for all skills learned in this course. You, along with your classmates, will be provided with ample opportunities to practice skills learned in the classroom. To better understand how a patient feels, you will not only be the EMS provider during the hands-on training sessions but also the patient. The clinical rotation section of this course allows you to observe the hospital emergency department and a local ambulance service. This exciting, fast paced course is designed to prepare you for the National Registry of EMT's Certification exam and for the Arkansas licensure. Check the EMT calendar for the next class dates.

It is my objective to provide the students with the didactic and affectionate knowledge to provide life saving care to those in need in any healthcare situation.   It is also my objective to pass along the psychomotor skills needed to perform emergency care regardless of any circumstance.   Once their knowledge has been gained the last objective will be guiding the students to employment where their knowledge and skills can be frequently used to aid them in their new career path.
