EMT basic certification returns to COTC Coshocton

| June 17, 2021

Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) is offering the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Basic Certificate at the Coshocton campus again this fall. This certificate course can be completed in just 15 weeks. Classes start Wednesday, Aug. 25 and will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-10 p.m. with some Saturdays.

The tuition for this certificate may be covered through Ohio’s short-term certificate grant, which provides up to $2,000 per student enrolled in a certificate program that leads to an industry-recognized credential for an in-demand job. This is a limited fund that will be awarded until funds are exhausted. To be considered, students must submit and satisfy the requirements on the Short-term Certificate Grant Application.

After completion of this course, students take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians exam for certification as an EMT. First on the scene in an emergency, EMTs administer first-aid treatment, sometimes providing life-saving care, to people who have suffered an illness or injury outside of a hospital setting.

Interested persons must attend an information session to learn more. Information sessions will be delivered remotely in an online video conference on the following dates: Tuesday, July 6 at 4 p.m.; Monday, July 19 at 2 p.m.; or Friday, Aug. 6 at 2 p.m.

Register and learn more at cotc.edu/emt-basic-certificate, or schedule an appointment with an admissions representative at 740-366-9222 or [email protected].

To apply, complete the free COTC admission application at cotc.edu/apply. You must obtain a background check and submit results to COTC prior to the first day of class. Background checks are available for purchase by prospective students at COTC’s Department of Public Safety on the Newark campus or at the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office (by appointment).
