Bottineau – Careers in emergency medicine are growing in popularity and demand. To help meet manpower needs, Dakota College Bottineau has partnered with Bottineau Ambulance Service to offer a series of two Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) courses. Both classes are scheduled from 6:30 pm to 10 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays in fall 2021 and spring 2022. In addition, students will be required to take practical training over an occasional weekend. Students who complete the EMT courses will be ready to take the National Register Exam to become a Nationally Registered EMT (NREMT).
For paramedics who want to improve the level of care they can provide, Dakota College has partnered with Trinity Health in Minot to offer a paramedic program. This program lasts four semesters and begins the first week of June each year. Classes run from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays and can be held in several communities in central and western ND. Students are also required to complete hands-on work one weekend per month, as well as hospital and field clinics. The deadline to apply for the paramedical program is April 1 of each year.
