The EMT class will be held Tuesday and Thursday nights from 5:30 to 9:30 pm, and on most Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm. The course begins on Tuesday, Jan. 23, and finishes in May. Classes will be held at the Oak Bluffs Fire Department. 

Completion of the course results in credits from the college, and is a requirement to test for the national EMT certification.
