Commonwealth University to Offer EMT Training
Bloomsburg, PA (06/08/2023) — Commonwealth University Workforce Development will offer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training at the Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield locations during the Fall 2023 semester.
Based on active learning, student engagement, and hybrid course design concepts, the EMT "flipped classroom" serves as a course roadmap to provide a cooperative and successful learning experience.
The flipped classroom model dedicates class time to resolving misconceptions through collaborative problem-solving activities, elevating knowledge into application-level tasks and skills practice, and increasing engagement and confidence.
Students will interact with primary source content outside the classroom to develop foundational knowledge. The EMT flipped classroom delivers primary source content in various engaging formats, including an "Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured," 11th edition eBook and interactive and virtual mentor lectures.
This 16-week EMT training will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9 p.m. from Aug. 22 through Dec. 14.
Cost for the program is $1,250 per person and includes all materials, 10 patient contacts, and one NREMT exam attempt. Scholarship opportunities may be available through your local EMS, your employer, or by calling Workforce Development at 570-484-3128. Reserve a seat at https://tinyurl.com/yb48xbsa.
