Become an EMT from the comfort of your home

Our Spring 2023 and Fall 2023 EMT Course(s) are FREE for qualified students. Eligibility requirements apply. There is a limited number of sponsored seats for the 2023 EMT course(s).
Online LIVE (Live Interactive Video Education) classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-10pm CST via interactive video conferencing. A computer with high speed internet connection, audio and webcam capabilities required.
Students will be required to attend Saturday skills lab sessions in Sioux Falls to gain hands-on skills and to fulfill course objectives. Based on student participation, regionalized skills lab opportunities are a possibility but not a guarantee.
