Emergency Medical Technician

About the Program

EMT110 is a hybrid course. It is an intense program designed to prepare you to work in the Emergency Medical Services field.

Lecture is via Zoom on Tuesdays from 2:15pm until 6:45pm. This is a review session and the student should come to the Zoom class having read the assigned chapters and be prepared to participate in the review. As these are recorded and we cannot make them mandatory during Covid, it is highly recommended that you treat this as a mandatory meeting and be prepared to attend just as if you were coming to class.

Labs are on campus on Wednesdays and Thursdays and are mandatory. The student will come to lab prepared to practice skills after having watched and reviewed all videos assigned prior to coming to lab.

Social distancing, masks and hand washing/disinfecting will be enforced during lab as well as cleaning equipment regularly and donning and doffing gloves between stations. The student will arrive to campus with no symptoms of cold or flu or ill feeling, complete a SBCC Healthy Roster check in and have their temperature taken each lab day. Labs are held outside in the fresh open air.

Exams will be taken online and you will need a computer with a webcam and microphone. See SBCC Luria Library re: borrowing a chrome book if needed.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the EMT course students will be able to:

  • Describe three critical elements in the initial management of shock.
  • Distinguish relevant from irrelevant data in identifying the signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure.
  • Perform correct CPR technique in a simulated cardiac arrest.
  • Identify the correct order of airway techniques for the EMT.

There will be expenses incurred with this class to be compliant with the EMT program as outlined by National Registry of EMTs as well as State and Local guidelines and our contracted hospital and ambulance affiliates for clinical hours. Please see below for the list and approximate costs.
