The Weatherford College EMT program is delivered by hybrid format to accommodate the needs of working professionals. This delivery model is a combination of online learning and face-to-face education, aimed at reducing the time in class. The majority of the lecture time is delivered online for complete by students on their own time outside for the college classroom. Time in class will be focused on skills practice, simulation, and hands-on practical application of the material covered during online coursework.


EMT candidates must be physically fit to the extent they are able to move and lift patients as required by EMS Employers.
