Program Description

The 9 credit-hour certificate program provides entry-level emergency medical care knowledge and skills with the delivery of Basic Life Support (BLS) as defined by the National EMS Education Standards. The program is presented in three modules. Each module concludes with a modular exam covering course content presented in that module. Specific enabling objectives are listed on the cover of each presentations handout. Modular exams for EMS 111, 112 and 113 must be passed with a minimum of 80% and these scores along with the cumulative quiz scores comprise the course GPA. In addition, a final cumulative exam must be passed with an 80% minimum but is considered pass/fail and the score does not factor into the students GPA. Failure to reach 80% on any modular exam, or the final cumulative exam will result in course failure. Failure to score 75% on the first attempt of any exam will be considered a fail of the exam. Students scoring between 75%-79% will be offered a retake of the exam. Failure to score a minimum of 80% on the retake will be considered a fail of the exam. A high school diploma or GED, 2.0 Harper GPA, and an age requirement of 18 is necessary. This program is offered only at Northwest Community Hospital. Required: Students must complete EMS 111, 112 and 113 modular exams with a C or above and must also complete the final exam with a C or above to successfully earn the EMT certificate.
