Hours: 81 hours LEC; 135 hours LAB
This course provides instruction to the level of Emergency Medical Technician (previously called EMT Basic or EMT-I). Topics include skills necessary to provide emergency medical care at a basic life support level with a fire, ambulance, or other specialized service. EMT students gain clinical experience in an ambulance and in emergency departments of hospitals. This course is recognized by both the Sacramento and El Dorado County Health Departments, Division of Emergency Medical Services, which are the certifying agencies for Sacramento and El Dorado Counties by the State of California. This certification is mandatory for all who wish to pursue a career working on an ambulance as a paramedic. EMT certification is also a pre-employment requirement for most fire departments. To be compliant with OSHA regulations, students may not have a beard or any facial hair below the lip. A final grade of "B" or better is required for a course completion certification. 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. Students must purchase liability insurance from the college.

EMT 102
Emergency Medical Care Refresher    1.5 Units
Prerequisite: Current certification as an Emergency Medical Technician (I) or Basic.
Hours: 23 hours LEC; 12 hours LAB
This course provides continuing education and skills verification modules for current Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) certified at the Basic Life Support (BLS) level. It satisfies most of the refresher requirements of local, state and national Emergency Medical Services (EMS) certifying organizations. EMS related topics include airway management and ventilation, cardiac care and resuscitation, patient assessment, injury management, legal and ethical issues, vital signs monitoring and assisting with medication administration. This course is designed for current California State certified EMT - Basic (1) and meets all state requirements for EMT (1) re-certification by Sacramento County and El Dorado County Health Departments, Division of Emergency Medical Services, which is the certifying agency for Sacramento County by the State of California. Basic Life Support (CPR) cards are not issued upon completion of this course. Students that have expired EMT (1) certification should contact the instructor prior to signing up for EMT 102. This course provides limited preparation for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) re-certification exam. This course is not a complete NREMT re-certification course; only psychomotor skills certification for NREMT. A watch with a second hand and any type of pocket-sized EMS field reference guide is required. This course is graded on a Pass/No Pass basis. This course may be taken up to four times for credit.
