Medical vocabulary with concentration on prefixes, suffixes, and root words. Emphasis on word dissection, definitions as applied to the body systems including the terminology used in surgical procedures. Concepts focus on comprehensive terminology, pronunciation and spelling core. EMS 70 CPR FOR HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS 0.5 Units Development of knowledge, skills and personal judgment necessary to initiate and perform basic life support techniques as a health care professional. Successful completion of the knowledge and skills tests qualifies for an American Heart Association Basic Life Support Certificate. EMS 91 EMERGENCY MED. TECH - REFRESHER 1.0 Units Provides a refresher in the foundation and knowledge required of the EMT-1 scope of practice. The EMT-1 certification is the minimum requirement for ambulance attendants and most entry-level firefighter positions. EMT-1 certification is also required for entry into paramedic training. This refresher program is accredited by the Alameda County Emergency Medical Services Agency. The course provides 24 hours of continuing education units or a course completion certificate. Additionally, the course provides skills verification testing that EMTs must complete every two years. Prerequisite: Proof of California State EMSA or National Registration Certification as an “Emergency Medical Technician.” Certification must be current, or expired less than 6 months. Student may also present documentation from the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians showing failure of initial three attempts at NREMT Certification Examination which now requires completion of EMS 91 for additional attempts to register for certification examination.
