About EMTP

Welcome to Emergency Medical Training Professionals, Inc. the Premier Allied Health Training & Educational Facility in Lexington, Kentucky! Finding the right program to accommodate a demanding schedule can be difficult. At EMTP we offer small class sizes, a great deal of hands on experience and attention, as well as flexible class schedules at affordable prices. Our classes are taught by knowledgeable, friendly and dedicated Educators.

As an Allied Health Training and Educational Facility we have a commitment to both the student and the patient; as lives may be reliant on our student’s preparedness. We provide the highest level of specialized, ethical and practical instruction for our students with particular attention given to the value of quality patient care. We believe that giving students proper guidance, along with an encouraging attitude, can transform an average student into a compassionate, proactive and innovative medical professional.

EMTP was created in 2007 with one goal in mind: To train and educate quality EMS providers. We wanted our students to become essential members of medical teams and to be excellent pre-hospital and in-hospital professionals, not to simply pass the national examinations.

Since 2007 our vision has grown from EMS providers to an allied health training ideal which incorporates many other aspects of the medical profession. We still offer all of our quality EMS course options. We are proud to include in our family of courses National Certified Phlebotomist, State Registered Nurse Aide, and several community training courses and continuing education courses for current medical professionals.

At EMTP we want to train you to not just be a high caliber medical professional but a high caliber person. To us, a professional is more than someone who just does their job well. We want to instill in our students that the individuals that they will be taking care of are more than just patients. They are people who need true patient care. We want our student’s future patients to feel holistically taken care of. We want them to sense the dedication to their job, education and patients that the graduates from EMTP have.

We would like to attribute our great success and continuing growth to the many students who have walked through our doors with a positive outlook and eager attitude. Without our students’ ambition and our dedicated instructors, we would not be where we are today.

Our instructors have experience from all aspects of healthcare not just the EMS field. The individuals that teach for EMTP have decades of combined experience. Our instructors pull their knowledge from rural and urban pre-hospital environments, clinical environments, and critical care settings.

EMTP has greatly expanded the classes we offer. We began servicing pre-hospital professionals. Today, we provide clinical, industrial, and community outreach programs.

Classes we offer include Emergency Medical Responder (EMR), EMT, Paramedic, National Certified Phlebotomist, State Registered Nurse Aide (SRNA), CPR, ACLS, PALS, PEPP, GEMS, PHTLS, AMLS, First Aid, and CABS.

We are proud members of the Better Business Bureau and Commerce Lexington. We will continue to grow and serve right here in the Bluegrass as a locally- and woman-owned and operated business. From all of us here at EMTP, we look forward to meeting your education needs!
