This Spring, Elon students interested in receiving an Emergency Medical Technician Basic Certification will get the chance, thanks to Alamance Community College.
ACC is offering a course in McMichael Science Building from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. every Monday as well as one to two Saturdays a month. The class will begin Feb. 6.
According to Erica Mena of Elon University, students are required to be at least 18 years of age, must bring a copy of their driver’s license and Social Security card, among other items.
So what exactly can students expect to get out of the class?
“This hybrid course is designed to prepare the student for certification as an Basic Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-B),” Mena said, “as defined and recognized by the NC Office of EMS and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NR). The course content includes the knowledge and skills necessary to provide emergency medical care at the basic life support level with an emergency service or other specialized service.”
Students are required to pay the class fee of $206 to ACC by check or over the phone to Jan Vass at (336) 506-4316.
Payment is due before the first day of class.
