Emergency Medical Technician Certification Class

Villanova EMS sponsors an EMT class on campus, twice per year, through the Twin Valley Training EMT Center. Twin Valley provides a hybrid, semester long class which involves completing modules online and practical portions of the class in person. The class is approximately 200 hours long, and ultimately results in students becoming certified as National Registry and Pennsylvania EMTs. 

Any individual is allowed to sign up for the EMT class, although first preference is given to individuals directly affiliated with Villanova EMS or the Villanova Department of Public Safety.
