Learn how to save a life. Help your community, fellow neighbors and friends. Emergency Medical Service courses will teach you how to render care for people experiencing medical emergencies, as well as how to give care to people who have been injured. Levels of training include Emergency Medical Responder, Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic.
EMT and Paramedic courses are scheduled regularly on the SCC Lincoln campus located at 8800 O St. EMT and EMR courses also may be held at our many SCC Learning Centers and other locations, based upon the needs of the community. These courses are all offered in daytime, evening and online formats.
All EMS courses offered by SCC meet the National EMS Education Standards, National Standards Curriculum and will prepare the student to test for the National Registry of EMT certification.
Students will learn how to do an initial assessment on a patient who is in need of emergency help. This will include measuring their vital signs and communicating with dispatchers, law enforcement and other health care providers. They provide life-saving interventions while awaiting additional EMS response and assist at the scene and during transport.
EMTs are the foundation of pre-hospital emergency medical care. For medical emergencies, they provide rapid response, initial evaluation and care, and transport to an appropriate medical facility. They also provide transport between facilities for people who are bedridden and/or require continuous monitoring and care.
EMT courses are held each quarter on the SCC Lincoln campus located at 8800 O St. Courses also may be held at our many SCC Learning Centers and other locations, based upon the needs of the community. These courses are all offered in daytime, evening and online formats.
