The EMT Program celebrated it's 40th anniversary during 2012.
The EMT Program at College of the Canyons prepares the student to render prehospital basic life support at the scene of an emergency, during transport of the sick and injured, or during interfacility transfer within an organized EMS system. The program integrates ethics, anatomy, physiology, basic life support, communication skills, patient assessment, trauma care and transportation of the prehospital patient. The program includes the Los Angeles County Scope of Practice 2011.
The student will participate in clinical hours at an Emergency Department and in an ambulance.
The EMT Program prepares the student for the National Registry Exam and certification in Los Angeles County and State of California as an EMT.
Our curriculum is based on the Department of Transportation's National Emergency Medical Services Education Standards 2009.
