Horizon Health Offers EMT-Basic Certification

Register now

Horizon Health is accepting registration for an upcoming EMT-Basic certification course.

The 18-week course will take place Mondays and Wednesdays, from 5 to 9 pm, beginning September 25. Classes will take place at the Horizon Health Education Center, 15197 US Highway 150, in Paris.

The course fee is $850, which includes a student polo shirt for clinical hours, a drug screen, and a background check. Fourteen seats are available—first come, first served. After completing the course, students will qualify for the National Registry EMT Exam.

Internet access is required, as this is a hybrid course. Access to Jones & Bartlett Learning and all course materials are provided. CPR certification is included in the course. Note that participants cannot be a convicted felon and must be up-to-date on immunizations prior to the start of class.

The course will be led by Sean Robison, Horizon Health EMT. Robison is licensed through the state of Illinois as a lead instructor for the course and is a practicing EMT-Basic for 15 years. He also serves as the EMS coordinator for the Paris Community Fire Protection District.

Visit MyHorizonHealth.org/EMT to register by Tuesday, August 1. The registration fee is required at the time of enrollment. For questions, email srobison@MyHorizonHealth.org.


Horizon Health will award two full scholarships to cover the cost of the course. The scholarships are available to individuals age 18 and older who reside within Horizon Health’s primary service area. Apply at MyHorizonHealth.org/Scholarships by Thursday, June 1.
