Trident Technical College’s Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development is adding a real-world simulation to its EMT Training Program in order to create an interactive experience for the EMT students.
The first EMT simulation is scheduled for Feb. 8 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the parking lot adjacent to Bldg. 910 on the Main Campus of Trident Technical College located at 7000 Rivers Ave. in North Charleston.
The college invested in equipment to set up a hands-on, real-world simulation that will now be a cornerstone to each course offered in the Continuing Education EMT Training Program at TTC.
The goal of this addition is to demonstrate that TTC’s students are work-ready once they have completed the program.
The Continuing Education EMT program is taking an active role in providing real-world scenarios and training as part of our core curriculum along with South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) and National Registry criteria.
TTC’s Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development EMT Training Program is a six-month, 200-hour course approved by the EMS Division of SCDHEC. It is an online/lecture-blended class which prepares the students to take the National Registry Examination after completion.
To enroll, you must be at least 18 years old before course completion; be a high school graduate or possess a high school equivalency (GED); be physically fit and able to perform all the tasks required of an EMT; and complete prescreening requirements in reading comprehension and math using the standardized COMPASS test offered through Trident Technical College’s Testing Center in the Student Center (Bldg. 410). A score of 42 must be achieved to enter the EMT Basic course.
