Yuba College offers new EMT class in Clearlake beginning in January

Yuba College offers new EMT class in Clearlake beginning in January

CLEARLAKE, Calif. – In January, students at Yuba College Clear Lake will have the the chance to take part in a new emergency medical technician, or EMT, training program.

The EMT class prepares students to take the certification examination as an EMT-1 and meet state EMT-1 training standards.

Enrolled students will participate in lectures and labs to acquire all the skills and principles necessary to perform the duties of EMT-1.

The primary instructor will be DJ Kennedy, with a cadre of specialists augmenting the training.

The class will meet at the Lake County Fire Protection District

The class will begin Jan. 12, 2015, and meet on Monday and Wednesday evenings as well as designated Saturdays.

Completion of this program is a requirement for certification as an EMT, but not a guarantee of certification.

“There is a huge need for this program,” said Lake County Fire Protection District Chief Willie Sapeta. “The area fire chiefs have not been able to hire local candidates in a long time. We desperately need a local training program. We are very excited to have this training program in Clearlake.”

Interested students may call Yuba College Clear Lake Campus at 707-995-7900 or visit the college Web site at www.clc.yccd.edu for additional information and instructions on enrollment and availability for financial aid.
