Emergency Medical Services – JC Certificate

The Emergency Medical Services: EMT Basic Certificate program prepares the student to be entry-level in delivering safe, high quality emergency patient care. The EMT-B is trained to respond to emergency calls to provide efficient and immediate care to the critically ill and injured, and to transport the patient to a medical facility. After receiving the call from the dispatcher, the EMT-B drives the ambulance to the address or location given, using the most expeditious route, depending on traffic and weather conditions. The EMT-B must observe traffic ordinances and regulations concerning emergency vehicle operation.

The Emergency Medical Services Certificate (EMSC) will provide education beyond the Basic Emergency Medical Technician minimum state requirements. The program is offered three times per year (fall, spring, summer.) The certificate program is designed to offer students stackable credentials in EMT-B and Emergency Medical Responder or alternative health science pathway career choices. EMSC program will prepare students to become leaders, who are entry-level emergency medical technicians, ready for the workforce or additional educational goals.

The program is designed in a hybrid format, offering course work online with hands-on practice in Jackson College’s state of the art simulation lab and driving simulator.
