Madison County High School offers an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification program, which is designed to train an individual to function independently in a medical emergency. The course provides the basic knowledge and skills needed to deliver Basic Life Support (BLS) care and is required to progress to more advanced levels of pre-hospital patient care. The course requires extensive classroom and clinical rotation time that is conducted on an ambulance providing 911 service. In order to obtain the certification, candidates are required to pass a psycho-motor test and a cognitive test. Candidates who complete the testing process successfully become Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technicians.
We are proud to say that MCHS senior, Kelly Jarvis, received her EMT certification after much hard work and dedication to the program. Congrats, Kelly, on a job well done!
