Course Description

Intended Audience

IEMS teaches an EMT-Basic course during the fall and spring academic semesters. The course is open to UIUC students, staff, and faculty who are able to meet the appropriate prerequisites (please see below).

Students in past classes range from those interested in future health careers in medicine, nursing, pre-hospital care, physical therapy, or physician assistant as well as those in other fields such as engineering, computer science, political science, foreign language, or business. Most EMT students are also students at the University of Illinois.

IEMS is proud to have an excellent first-time passing rate of above 90% among our EMT students that take the NREMT. The average first-time passing rate for Illinois in 2016 was 69%, while the national first-time passing rate was 68%. Upon passing the certification exam, students will be eligible to receive both National Registry certification and State of Illinois licensure.

To observe just a few of the skills you will learn and the impact you can make on the lives of others, please watch our video, which is now in the NCEMSF Hall of Fame!
