Cosumnes River College's Emergency Medical Technology 100 course is the primary step to provide the student with the skills and knowledge to apply for certification as an Emergency Medical Technician and is approved by the Sacramento County Health Department, Division of Emergency Medical Services, which is the certifying agency for Sacramento County by the State of California. This certification is mandatory for all personnel who wish to pursue a career working on an ambulance. EMT certification is also a pre-employment requirement for most paid fire departments. Together with varying levels of actual on-the-job experience, it is required for admission to paramedic training programs throughout the state and country. EMT students will gain actual clinical experience by spending time off-campus in operating ambulance units and in emergency departments of hospitals. Students will be required to complete background checks and drug screens, purchase uniforms and liability insurance, verify immunizations and have TB clearance. Other requirements may be necessary for the clinical component of this course. The course requires students to work on an ambulance in the clinical component. Students may not have a beard or any facial hair below the lip to be compliant with OSHA regulations. This course is conducted in compliance with the California Code of Regulations. A final grade of "B" or better is required for a course completion certification in this course. This is an intensive medical class that students should possess a strong background in anatomy and physiology as well as medical terminology. Students that do not possess both generally do not succeed in the course. It is STRONGLY recommended that students take a basic anatomy and physiology class as well as a medical terminology class prior to attempting this class. See Advisory. The EMT class has additional non-mandatory hours for quiz reviews and skills practice that students are strongly encouraged to attend. To become Certified (Licensed) as an EMT in California all applicants must be legal citizens, posses a high school diploma (GED), be at least 18 years old, pass background check, and have valid social security number.
