In the Spotlight:

Penn State EMS Education

The University Ambulance Service and Penn State University are dedicated to providing not only quality emergency medical care, but also EMS education. Training opportunities include Kinesiology 403, our 4-credit, semester-long EMT training program for people with no previous EMS experience, as well as a number of training opportunities for current EMTs.

Below, you will find resources relating to training programs run through the University Ambulance Service in conjunction with Penn State Continuing Education and the Kinesiology department. If you need any more information, please contact Josh Fremberg, our EMS Instructor.

More information concerning our for-credit course offerings in EMS (including Kines 403, the EMT class) are available by clicking here.

Kines 403: Emergency Medical Technology (EMT Class)

This semester-long, 4-credit course provides the student training to the level of the Emergency Medical Technician-Basic, who serves as a vital link in the chain of survival as an integral part of the health care team. This course includes skills necessary for the individual to provide emergency medical care at a basic life support level with an ambulance or other specialized service. After successfully completing this course, the student will be prepared to take the EMT-Basic exam offered by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the National Registry of EMTs.

The application process for the EMT course - Kinesiology 403 - has changed! To apply for the class, please log on to CANVAS and search for the pride "KINES 403 Application". The passcode is EMT. Complete the KINES 403 Application for the semester and submit. We will be able to review your application on-line.

We no longer enforce the Kinesiology 303 pre-requisite for either Kines 304 or Kines 403.

Continuing-Education Training for Current EMTs

Every semester, the University Ambulance Service offers a number of continuing education opportunities for its current EMTs. Some of these lectures are available to the public. Common topics include respiratory emergencies, cardiology, pharmacology, sexual assault and domestic violence, and toxicology. Some of these events are open to non-affiliated EMTs, and can be located at the Department of Health continuing education page. Our continuing education sponsor number is 20-0007.
