    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is awesome. He explains everything very well and is very passionate about EMS. The course, if you're looking into becoming an EMT, Paramedic or a Paramedic-Firefighter it is required. Although, this course at Broward College is the best way to go.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how to do emergency first aid, life saving techniques, how to preserve the patient from further injuries, etc. The highlight was getting hands on lab experience and working with my peers. Working with other students helps, not only your grades but your mastery levels.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to study. It is not a free hand out of a class. If you want it, you have to work for it. Make the textbook your best friend. Learn with your classmates and help out each other. Get to know your professor on a personal level. You never know the people they may know.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this field because it does provide many newcomers with the knowledge and practical actions to potentially save a life. I have found myself in many situations in which an unfortunate individual has fainted due to unknown circumstances. Thanks to the knowledge and teachings of this course, I was able to make a difference in the situation. whether it was to comfort the patient or provide the steps needed to preserve their life until helped arrived. It's a rewarding feeling.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I have learned how to be confident in my ability to remain calm during fatal situations. I was able to learn to be the voice of hope for a frantic wife as her husband laid unresponsive. I learn to preserve the quality of life when a patient's heart ceases to stop. Aside from the knowledge proved from this course, there is a deeper gain that you reserve when being told, " ...Because of you, my husband is alive." There is no greater feeling than that, and these are the abilities you will learn during your time in this EMT course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    be prepare to invest a lot of time and effort when enrolling into these classes. It's not an easy course, but it is well worth it.
