How to become an EMT

We often hear, How do I become an EMT? 

At Brighton Volunteer Ambulance, we want the best and brightest. Our Volunteers are the cornerstone of our organization. So what is the first step?


If you’re already an Emergency Medical Technician, we invite you to submit an application. They can be found here.


Not an EMT yet? Have no fear.

The EMT class (EMS 110 at Monroe Community College) is a 103-hour course that provides knowledge and skills necessary to care for the sick and injured in a prehospital setting. Topics include the recognition and treatment of respiratory and circulatory emergencies, trauma, medical emergencies, environmental injuries, emergency childbirth, and psychological emergencies. Students successfully completing this course are eligible to take the New York State certification exam for emergency medical technicians.

You can visit the MCC website to find the class schedule and enroll in the next class that fits your schedule. There are a variety of day and night class offerings, both on the MCC Public Safety Campus and off.
