Degree Description

Emergency Medical Technician is NOT a program leading to a degree at South Central College. Rather, SCC offers a series of courses that lead to certifications which prepare learners to render emergency medical services to the public.

These certifications are not eligible for federal student aid.

Basic Entrance Requirements

Students must be 18 years of age prior to the start of the initial Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course.  There is not an age requirement for the First Responder course.

Student Background Studies

Minnesota law requires that any person who provides services that involve direct contact with patients and residents at a health care or child care facility licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health have a background study conducted by the state.  An individual who is disqualified from having direct patient contact as a result of the background study, and whose disqualification is not set aside by the Commissioner of Health, will not be permitted to participate in a clinical placement in a Minnesota licensed health care or child care facility.  Failure to participate in a clinical placement required by the program could result in ineligibility to qualify for completion of the course.
