Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
This 11-week course is offered in a hybrid flipped classroom format. Participants will need to complete online asynchronous course work in addition to attending live ZOOM lectures Tuesdays from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. and Thursdays from 6 p.m. -10 p.m. In-person skills sessions will be held Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm. In addition to the online and classroom sessions participants will complete 24 hours of clinical experience.
California State EMS regulations and college credit standards require a minimum number of hours for EMT education. Therefore, attendance is always mandatory and is tracked hour by hour. Students who fail to meet the hourly obligation MUST make up missed hours on an hour by hour basis.
A course completion certificate is awarded to students who pass the course with a score of 80% or better and fulfill all clinical requirements. Successful completion of the EMT course provides eligibility to the National Registry of EMTs examination to receive certification as a Nationally Registered EMT. Once nationally registered, graduates are eligible to apply for state licensure which will allow them to work as an EMT in local areas of choice. A student must be 18 years or older in order to qualify for state licensure. (NREMT and State/Local Licensure fees are not included in course cost.)
