Description: This is a survey of biological science with an emphasis on human biology. This course is intended for non-science majors. Topics covered include scientific inquiry, cell structure, transmission and molecular genetics, major organ systems, evolution, and ecology. Major biological principles are explored in each topic, but an emphasis is placed on human issues. The laboratory activities are designed to further investigate and illuminate each topic area. Students interested in a general elective biology course are strongly advised to take either BIOL 300, BIOL 307, or BIOL 310 since some transfer institutions will provide credit for only one of the three courses.

Course Transferable to UC/CSU
See UC Limitations & Counselor
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course introduces students to the principles of modern genetics, especially as they apply to human health and society. Rapid advances in scientists' knowledge of what genes are and how they work impact the daily life of people through genetically modified foods, DNA fingerprinting, therapies for human disease and a variety of reproductive technologies. This course includes the study of Mendelian inheritance, the roles of chromosomes and genes in human disease, how genes direct development, the relationship between genes, environment and behavior, and the contribution of genes to human diversity. Ethical, legal and social issues will be explored through class discussions and written reports. This course is primarily intended for non-biology majors; however, biology majors may enjoy the opportunity to explore human genetics in greater depth than is possible in BIOL 400.

The student must have a BLS for the Healthcare Provider Cards from the American Heart Association and we no longer accept Red Cross Cards. Please go to Program website for more information on this training - http://www.crcems.us/program-info/cpr-training/
Advisory: AH 110 and BIOL 102; Students should take an Anatomy and Physiology course or an EMT Prep course prior to taking EMT 100. Two subject areas many students struggle with in an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program are Medical Terminology and the Human Body topics, especially Cardiology and Neurology. UCLA EMS Education Program offers an Online EMT Prep course: https://www.cpc.mednet.ucla.edu/course/emt-preparation
Enrollment Limitation: Not open to students with a current California EMT - certification (license). California licensed Physicians, RNs, Paramedics, or military trained medics may be allowed to challenge the course under State law. Please check with the Program Director for more information.
Hours: 81 hours LEC ; 162 hours LAB
Description: This course provides instruction to the level of Emergency Medical Technician (Previously called EMT Basic or EMT-I). This course has additional financial costs that are required for clinical components. Topics include: skills necessary to provide emergency medical care at a basic life-support level with a fire, ambulance, or other specialized service. 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"ť 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.

Class meetings on January 18, January 23, January 25, January 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and May 15 are on the CRC campus in room P131A. Students who miss the first class session will be dropped; the first four class sessions are mandatory as they prepare students tutor. Any student wishing to enroll in ENGED 320 after January 18, 2017 must contact the professor before showing up to class or at the tutoring location. Class size will be limited due to restrictions at the school where tutoring will take place. Starting Wednesday, February 1 through May 10 students will meet at the tutoring location: Barbara Comstock Elementary School, 7000 Cranleigh Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95823. Students must provide their own transportation to and from the elementary school. All students must be available every Monday and Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for lecture and lab between the dates of February 1 and May 10, 2017. Any absence from the tutoring location can result in the student being dropped immediately form the course; BCM teachers and students deserve tutors who are responsible and serious about tutoring. Finally, this is not a course for CRC students to learn English; it is expected that all students will be able to tutor English and are familiar with speaking, reading, and writing in English. The final exam for the course will be Monday, May 15, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on the CRC campus.
