Frequently Asked Questions:
Where are classes held?
Classes are held at the Marlboro First Aid Squad located at 140 Wyncrest Road, Marlboro, NJ(Corner of Wyncrest Rd and Stone Lane). You cannot be more than 15 minutes late to any class session per state regulations so please make sure you plan accordingly.
How old must you be to become an EMT?
State regulations require you to be 16 years old prior to the first day of class – no exceptions.
Does this course require a lot of outside class work?
This course requires a lot of reading and studying. Students read an average of 200 pages of material per week. So, in addition to class time, please make sure you have enough time on non-class days to study.
Do I need a computer for this course?
Our textbook, some lectures, and all chapter quizzes are all online. Access to the internet via laptop, tablet, or similar device will be needed for you to complete all of your work.
What is the difference between your traditional and hybrid course?
Traditional courses give students lectures and hands on skills sessions. Hybrid training provides skills sessions only meaning the hybrid student must be highly motivated to complete all reading and explore concepts individually to ensure comprehension. Our course site does conduct a micro-topic review of most lectures to enhance the student's learning.
Do you make accommodations for students with disabilities or English as a second language learners?
If you have had an IEP written in the last 5 years that specifies you should have extended testing time, you will have one and half times the allotted time to take written exams including the state exam. The state does expect students to be proficient in English to be effective EMT’s. Please contact us for all other ADA related questions so that we may best assist you individually in determining what accommodations we may be able to provide.
Is a CPR card a pre-requisite?
Yes all students must have a Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers or Professional Rescuers.
