Colorado Mountain College offers training course for EMT candidates

Colorado Mountain College is offering an intermediate-level emergency medical technician course this month.

EMTs with basic skills have until Aug. 8 to submit applications for admission to an upcoming EMT-Intermediate class at CMC’s Roaring Fork Campus in Glenwood Springs. The class will prepare EMT-Basic providers for the state skills exam and the National Registry EMT-Intermediate exam, and will prepare them to apply for Colorado certification as EMT-I providers.

The two-semester course, starting this month, is the only EMT-I class between Eagle, Parachute and Aspen. Applicants must submit an application, available from the Glenwood Center (call 945-7486 to request); a letter of recommendation from an EMS supervisor; a copy of a current EMT-B certification; and a copy of current professional-level CPR certification.

A written and skills pre-test is Aug. 13. Only people who have submitted an application will be eligible to participate in these pretests.

For more information, call CMC Roaring Fork EMS education director Ken McCracken at 947-8483, or e-mail
