The OUSD Linked Learning Office and Merritt College are thrilled to announce the 2017-18 EMR/EMT program!
EMT certification and work experience are required for those seeking Paramedic training, and many doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers started their careers as EMTs.
EMR/EMT Training Includes…
Hands-on experience and knowledge of anatomy, physiology, medical trauma, communicable diseases, medical terminology, and patient assessment.
Skills labs using real-life scenarios in communicating with fire and police department responders and going on ride-alongs.
After completion of the program a Certificate of Program Completion is issued by Merritt College and students will be eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
The program starts in the Fall 2017 semester with a 17-week class, Emergency Medical Technician 230.
The class will take place at Oakland High School in room NB-206 on Wednesdays, 3:20-6:20 p.m. Class starts on August 23rd.
All students enrolled in the EMR/EMT courses should be at least 17 years old at the start of the course and meet all eligibility requirements.
After the Fall, students will have the option to take a 17-week Spring 2018 class, Emergency Medical Technician 211. The entire course sequence takes 9 months to complete.
