Emergency Medical Technician
Waubonsee offers the EMT-B course during the morning, afternoon, and evening at the Sugar Grove and Plano Campuses. In the course, emergency situations are simulated, with students playing the roles not only of the EMTs, but also the victims, bystanders, police officers and hospital personnel. Students then get a dose of the real thing during their 12 hours of required emergency room observation.
Waubonsee graduates are prepared for the required licensure exams, and for those EMT-Bs ready to move on, Delnor Community Hospital partners with Waubonsee to offer the EMT-P.
If you're between the ages of 16-21 and come from a low-income household, you may be able to get your EMT tuition, fees, books and supplies paid for through the Youth Services Program.
