EMTs operate both in the emergency response system, in a supportive capacity to their paramedic partners, or on an interfacility transfer ambulance that monitors and cares for patients requiring transport by ambulance. Certification as an EMT requires completion of an EMT training course, as well as provider-level training in Basic Life Support and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation.
