EMT/EMR Training Courses

Simley EMR/EMT Training Courses

Simley High School offers an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course through its partnership with Pine Technical & Community College. Students learn real-world skills and can even earn certifications to work as an EMR or EMT right out of high school. Both courses also allow students to earn college credit.

Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) Course

Students with or without previous emergency care course experience can take EMR classes. The classes teach students the skills to manage patient care until the arrival of ambulance personnel.

While students learn important lessons on anatomy/physiology, patient assessment, and medical skills, they will earn their AHA CPR Certification and become a Minnesota State-registered Emergency Medical Responder. Students will also earn 3 concurrent enrollment credits through Pine Technical & Community College.

Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Course

The EMT course is available to students upon successful completion of the EMT course. In this course, students will work with equipment and have the opportunity to participate in additional off-campus experiences, which have included professional drills with the Inver Grove Heights Fire Department and local hospitals. The EMT course meets or exceeds the United States Department of Transportation 2009 National EMS Education Standards for the Emergency Medical Technician. This means that students who have successfully completed the class and are at least 18 years old can take the National Registry EMT written exam. Students will also earn 6 concurrent enrollment credits at Pine Technical & Community College.
