Accelerated, Hybrid EMT Program Prerequisites

The Commonwealth of Virginia's Office of EMS prescribes a number of pre-requisites from all students seeking initial EMT certification. Students may register in advance of completing these requirements so long as they are completed before the first class meeting.

  • The student must be able to perform physical tasks as outlined in the Virginia Office of EMS functional position description
