Emergency Medical Responder


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates

The Emergency Medical Responder (formerly First Responder) course is the most basic level of formal emergency medical training offered by the college. The course is designed for students who generally do not intend to pursue advanced training in EMS; however, it is a shorter course that can provide someone interested in exploring EMS as a possible career with a better insight into what the profession is about. The course is typically taken by students acting as “first responders” in industrial or volunteer settings. The course is designed to meet the US DOT National Standard Curriculum for First Responder, the EMS Education Standards for Emergency Medical Responder, and the NM EMS training standards. The course is NOT a prerequisite or corequisite to any other level of EMS training at SJC.
