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. 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 "B" or better is required for a course completion certification in this course. This is an intensive medical class and 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.

The Falcon's Eye closes its eighth season with Caryl Churchill's groundbreaking satire Cloud Nine. During a Victorian-era Christmas, Clive and his family of English ex-pats in Africa host an explorer and a widow seeking refuge from a hostile tribe. The visitors set off a rash of secret dalliances in the house, with partners varying in age, sexual orientation and social position. In the second act, set in Thatcher-era London, the characters all reappear. They've aged only 25 years, and the actors have switched roles in more ways than one. This Obie-winning comedy has been called "a testament to self-acceptance."

This variable unit class is for prospective designers, stage managers, and technicians and requires an interview prior to enrollment. Students may sign up for 1.0 or 3.0 units. Please contact the instructor. The Falcon's Eye closes its eighth season with Caryl Churchill's groundbreaking satire Cloud Nine. During a Victorian-era Christmas, Clive and his family of English ex-pats in Africa host an explorer and a widow seeking refuge from a hostile tribe. The visitors set off a rash of secret dalliances in the house, with partners varying in age, sexual orientation and social position. In the second act, set in Thatcher-era London, the characters all reappear. They've aged only 25 years, and the actors have switched roles in more ways than one. This Obie-winning comedy has been called "a testament to self-acceptance."
