HOLYOKE — Emergency Medical Technician training classes for the spring 2019 semester begin Thursday, Jan. 31 at Holyoke Community College. Registrations will be accepted until the class is filled. 

The spring EMT Basic Course (EMT-B) runs until May 23. The program consists of 13 weeks (170-plus hours) of in-class lectures and additional online study, training, field trips, and workshops designed to prepare students for the state certification exam. The training takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 10 p.m. and select Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Center for Health Education on Jarvis Avenue, the state-of-the-art home of HCC’s nursing and radiologic technology programs. 

The course is taught by local EMT Mike Marafuga and covers all aspects of emergency care, including patient handling, extrication, and communication, and makes extensive use of the center’s medical simulation labs.
