Sanford Health is offering a hybrid course for anyone in the region seeking to become an emergency medical technician (EMT). Registration is open and classes start August 25.

“This is the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in serving with your local volunteer ambulance service, pursuing a career as a paramedic or gaining experience for applications to other health care professions such as medical school,” said Sanford Health EMS Education Director Ron Lawler. “Our EMT courses allow students to attend the weekly lectures online from the comfort of home. Labs are held in person in various locations, including Bismarck and Fargo in North Dakota and Thief River Falls in Minnesota.”

Classes run through December 17. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, class size restrictions and additional labs have been added. Courses are usually held three times a year.

To register or learn more, visit can also register through the North Dakota State College of Science for college credits. Sponsorships from local ambulance services, the U.S. Veterans Administration or state programs may be available to help cover the cost of the EMT course.
