Law enforcement, firefighting and emergency medical service (EMS) careers demand quick thinking, adrenalin and sweat to answer the calls from individuals who need help or when responding to a natural or manmade disaster. First trimester, students will learn how to assess and treat wounded or sick patients while on scene by using all of the equipment found in an ambulance or rescue truck. During second trimester, this class focuses on criminal investigative techniques, state traffic and criminal law, and gives students an inside view of the wide variety of law enforcement career choices offered by local, state and federal agencies. Third trimester, the class includes learning fire suppression techniques while in full firefighter turnout gear, incident management, and awareness level certification in hazardous materials response.
- Students successfully completing Emergency Medical Services A, Law Enforcement B and/or Fire Fighting C may have the opportunity to earn Articulated College Credit from a post-secondary institution. Please contact the course instructor for more information regarding articulation agreements and participating colleges and universities.
- Students have the opportunity to become certified at the state and national levels as an EMS First Responder (required for all police and firefighters in Minnesota). NOTE: A student donation of $20 will be requested.
Advanced Emergency Services (7749 Advanced Emergency Services C)
Site: Rosemount High School
Prerequisite: Emergency Medical Services A
Length: Two Periods, Spring Trimester
This section of the course will prepare students to take the written and practical skills test required for certification by the Minnesota Emergency Medical Services Board as an Emergency Medical Technician. This national certification is the basic level required for ambulance drivers in the United States. As a part of the EMS training each student will be required to have completed and passed a CPR course at the Professional Rescuer level and received Emergency Medical Responder certification through the Minnesota Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board. This course will refresh the skills learned in the first trimester of Emergency Services Occupations and will also add the required knowledge needed in order to pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians written exam.
The evaluations in the course will include the following:
- State Evaluator score earned as part of the EMT Practical Skills Test (8 stations).
- The score received after taking the FISDAP computerized EMT preparation exam (150 questions).
The State of Minnesota requires all first time EMTs to pass the computerized test administered through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT). This test is given in Eagan and will cost $70 each time it is taken. The FISDAP preparation exam is 96% accurate in determining if the candidate is ready to take the NREMT exam.
Students successfully completing Advanced Emergency Services C may have the opportunity to earn Articulated College Credit from a post-secondary institution. Please contact the course instructor for more information regarding articulation agreements and participating colleges and universities.
