Notes

Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses required within the program. EMT104 requires students to complete additional hours in a competency-based clinical, vehicular, and/or scenario based experience. Depending on the college, this may be completed through EMT104AB or program director-approved rotation.

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Emergency Response and Operations program provides students with a curriculum specific to the student's individual needs in addition to the knowledge and skills needed in today's changing public safety workplace. The program develops education, skills, and techniques for planning, responding, and mitigating various emergency situations within the student's specific discipline with emphasis on effective response and operations. The curriculum combines coursework in public safety emergency services with a general education component. Additional Certificates of Completion (CCL) are available.
