CRC'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 (I) 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 (I) 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 or in an emergency department of a hospital. Students will be required to complete background checks, purchase uniforms, verify immunizations, Tb clearance and other requirements for the clinical component of this course. This course is conducted in compliance with the California Code of Regulations. A final grade "B" or better is required for a course completion certification in this course.
