The Oswego County Emergency Management Office (EMO) offers emergency medical technician (EMT) training at the Oswego County Office Building, 200 N. Second St., Fulton.

The 10-week course begins on Friday, March 24 and runs through Friday, June 2. Classes meet from 6 to 10 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with two Saturday classes. The first is April 29, the second is May 20 and both sessions run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On Saturday, June 3, the New York State hands-on exam will test students’ skills following the course. After successful completion of the practical test, students will be contacted by New York State to schedule them for a written exam at a nearby testing center. After receiving a passing result on that exam, students will be awarded their EMT certification.

The cost for the course is $775.

EMT classes help prepare students to provide pre-hospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries.
