    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to someone interested in only becoming an EMT, and nothing higher. The reason for that is that my professor of this class was fantastic, however, working with the director of the program who was also the professor of the paramedic class, seemed unorganized and ill-planned.

    Course highlights:

    This class prepared me to become the EMT I am. I had no background in medicine, and this course taught me about real scenarios and how to handle them. They put a nice touch to it when they directed us and gave us exactly what we needed to become certified after the completion of the course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to always read your textbook. However, read it to learn and understand, not only to pass the test. Once you complete this course and become certified, you are the only thing keeping someone alive and you will need the knowledge that could be gained from this course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was by far the most difficult class I have ever taken, but by far the most fulfilling. I treated real patients, I was expected to write medical documentation on these patients. I was put in actual situations to save someone's life. The tests are adaptive (meaning they get harder the more questions you get right) It made my bad study habits go away, I had to buckle down and improve on every aspect of my academic life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are definitely the labs and clinical rotations. I learned in the labs how to stop bleeding with direct pressure and tourniquet application, how to backboard patients with a spinal injury, I learned how to ventilate and apply oxygen to patients who have difficulty breathing. In the clinical rotations, I actually applied what I learned to real life patients. It was incredible to be able to use my newly found skills in different situations.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This class will test you, with the tests themselves and emotionally. I witnessed two patients die on ambulance runs. I recommend coming prepared and to take care of yourself. It will be difficult and you will feel helpless, but do not give up. Be strong and be prepared. Give the best care in your abilities and you will be fine.
