The EMT Academy will be divided into the following course sections:

  • A minimum of 146 hours of didactic instructions and skills laboratory

  • A minimum of 24 hours of supervised clinical experience in an acute care setting

  • All instructions comply with local, state and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) National EMS Education Standards (DOT HS 811 0771, January 2009).

Student Life

At BATA we pride ourselves in providing the most up to date information that is relevant to student understanding. Student textbooks come with an online component to assist the student in studying for exams and understanding concepts. These concepts are further explained through lectures and then demonstrated through skills-based scenarios. We structure our classes this way in order to cater to all different types of student learning styles.
