Small class size

At TSTC, our Emergency Medical Technician classes are small and intimate. We make sure each student gets the individualized attention and help they need. That’s one reason we limit lab instruction to a 10:1 student-to-teacher ratio.

Hands-on learning

When you enroll in the Emergency Medical Technology program at TSTC, you will be guided by our experienced instructors who will walk you through the use of cutting edge medical equipment like airway management tools, cardiac monitors, electro-therapy tools and more. You even participate in several Mass Casualty Simulations each year that put you in the middle of a crisis situation to get you ready for the real emergencies you’ll be faced with day-in and day-out on the job.
