Online CPR courses without hands on skills component are NOT accepted. The college will NOT accept Life Guard Training Certificates or EMR (First Responder) Certificates as CPR cards. 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" 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.
