Dean: James Cousino
This program is designed as an introduction to Emergency Medical Services using either EMS 105 (Medical First Responder) or EMS 110 (EMT Basic) as the point of entry. Students with no prior healthcare or EMS background should consider taking EMS 105 and then EMS 110; students with some healthcare experience should consider starting the certificate of development with EMS 110 and then completing both ENG 111 and MATH 120 (or any higher MATH course). This EMT basic course of study (or the equivalent) is needed to go on to the Associate's degree (Program Code 253) or Certificate program (Program Code 153).
