This course is approved by the Sacramento County and El Dorado County Health Departments, Division of Emergency Medical Services, which is the certifying agency for Sacramento and El Dorado Counties 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/drug screens, purchase uniforms, and verify immunizations, Tb clearance and other requirements for the clinical component of this course. The course requires students to work on an ambulance in the clinical component. To be compliant with ISHA regulations, students may not have a beard or any facial hair below the lip. 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. This is an intensive medical class and students are STRONGLY advised to take a class in medical terminology as well as a basic anatomy and physiology course. Students who do not possess both generally do not succeed in this course. All students must bring a watch with seconds displayed each day to class. Students will also be required to have PPE (gloves), and other EMT equipment to participate in the clinical component. All students must purchase an EMT student T-shirt to be worn to all class sessions. Dark blue work pants will be required for the ER and ambulance experience. Liability insurance will be purchased from the college.
