Welcome to the OTC Emergency Medical Technician Program.

The OTC Emergency Medical Technician program (EMT) is accredited by the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services and Emergency Medical Services and nationally accredited by CoAEMSP. The OTC EMT program is offered in conjunction with Cox Health Systems and offers three options in the Emergency Medical Services profession: EMT-Basic, EMT-Intermediate and EMT-Paramedic. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that EMTs and paramedics have a much faster than average job outlook for the future.


The Paramedic program at OTC will transition from a fall start to a spring start beginning in the 2016-17 school year. Because of this, applications accepted by July 15, 2016 will begin the program in the fall semester and applications accepted by September 15, 2016 will begin the program in the spring semester.

Please call or visit the Allied Health office for any questions or for assistance in applying.
