Instructor Mike Miller demonstrates the use of a traction splint with the help of senior Sebastian Fawcett during a hands-on learning session of the PHS EMT Certification program. 

PHS seniors with an interest in medicine have the opportunity to take a year-long EMT course housed at the Innovation Center.  The class is for students interested in becoming CNAs, LPNs, Registered Nurses, EMTs, Paramedics, Firefighters, Police officers or Physicians. Once students complete the two semester program, they are eligible to take an exam for EMT National Certification. 

The class structure includes in class, hands-on instruction twice a week for two hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and an on-line component that students are responsible for completing.  Additionally, students must complete a practical component which involves students participating in ride-alongs with an EMT professional.

This opportunity could save students approximately $1,500 rather than having to complete this course outside of the school.
