About our Program
The EMT program is a comprehensive curriculum that provides knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary to provide Emergency Medical Care in a pre-hospital environment. Academic rigor encompasses legal and moral aspects, scene safety, primary and secondary patient assessments, intervention and stabilization skills, proper use of emergency medical equipment, awareness of blood-borne pathogens and communicable diseases, recognizing signs and symptoms, and pathophysiology of medical emergencies and traumatic injuries. Practical skills training includes hands-on skills training and interactive simulations. This course meets EMT curriculum requirements of the California Code of Regulations Title 22, the California EMS Authority and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
All EMT students are required to register for EMT 510, Health Care CPR. There are 2 different offerings listed on Web Advisor for the spring 2019 semester.
