Dartmouth EMS offers training opportunities for community members as well as more advanced classes for healthcare providers.

CPR and First Aid Classes

Dartmouth EMS offers American Heart Association certification courses in First Aid and CPR. Most of our CPR courses are at the “Heartsaver” level, though we do offer training at the “Healthcare Provider” (Basic Life Support) level for professional rescuers. Our courses are available at a subsidized rate of $15 per course for undergraduate students *(Please note the new price). The cost for graduate students, faculty, staff, and community members is $45 per course. If you would like to sign up for one of our classes, please follow the link below.

We also offer courses for student organizations, community groups, and departments at locations and times of your choice. Please email us at to set up a customized course for you at your location in the Upper Valley area.

**Tardiness Policy: If you are more than 10 minutes late to a class your spot may be given away to an unregistered person who was on time for the class. We cover material quickly and being on time to these classes is very important.

*****Cancellation Policy: Failure to give prompt notice of a class cancellation with a valid excuse or failure to show up to the class without notice will evoke the class cancellation policy. If after making one of the above failures you wish to take another class, you will be required to email your DA$H number to Dartmouth EMS in advance and you will be charged for your missed class. If you are a non-Dartmouth student, you will be required to pay for the missed class prior to attending another class. Please contact Dartmouth EMS with any questions regarding this policy.*****

Interested individuals may take the online portion of CPR from the American Heart Association website and complete just the skills section with Dartmouth EMS. If interested in this opportunity, please email us at for more information. Additionally, if the course offerings listed below do not work for your schedule, please email Dartmouth EMS with days and times that work well as we will likely be adding more courses as the term progresses.

Housing Notice: All Dartmouth Students can apply for Interim housing for the duration of the course. If you are a Dartmouth student and you sign up for this course, this is strongly recommended. In your interim housing application you must state that you will be on campus to take this EMT course. You can still apply for winterim housing though there is a $50 late fee unless you document extenuating circumstances on your housing application. To learn more about interim housing go to:

Winter Spring EMT Course:

We will not be holding a winter-spring course during this school year but are soliciting interest in such a course that would take place during the 2016 winter and spring terms.

If you are are interested please email

This course would potentially take place during the course of the winter term and spring term. Classes would most likely be in the evenings two days each week for four hours each and for eight hours on Saturdays during the terms.

Certifications upon successful completion of course and exams would include EMT from National Registry of EMTs and CPR for the Healthcare Provider.

D-EMS Training and CME Events

PHTLS Class:

Dartmouth EMS will be hosting a Pre-Hospital Traumatic Life Support (PHTLS) class during the winter term.

Both EMTs and OECs are eligible to take this course.

The class itself costs $150, but in order to take the course, you will first need to complete an online component, which costs $39.95. The online module takes another 8 hours. Successful completion of the course results in a PHTLS certification and 16 hours of CMEs.
