EMTs and Paramedics

Advanced Emergency Medical Services Certificate

See Details

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and paramedics care for the sick or injured in emergency medical settings. People's lives often depend on their quick and competent care. EMTs and paramedics respond to emergency calls, performing medical services and transporting patients to medical facilities.

The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program is designed to provide the student with theory, practical demonstration, lab practice, and clinical experiences for three specific levels: Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT), and Paramedic. All of the instructors are licensed para­medics with academic degrees and years of field experience. In addition, the program employs a licensed physician to serve as medical director. The medical director is present for many classes and labs to review educational content.

EMT students can receive their certification after one semester and go to work. After completion of the EMT certificate, students can continue work for an additional semester to earn an AEMT certificate. The Associate Degree in Emergency Medical Services - Paramedic requires five semes­ters along with pre-requisite and co-requisite courses. With classes meeting only two nights per week, students are able to work and go to school. In addition, some courses are taught in blocks. One subject is mastered prior to moving on to additional topics.

Auto Mechanic

Automotive Mechanics Certificate

See Details

Yesterday's automobiles were simple and fun. Backyard muscle car mechanics were plentiful back then, but really well-trained professional technicians with the skills to straighten out those really tough problems have always been scarce.

Today's automobiles are still fun, but they aren't simple any more. And, while backyard mechanics are still around, they are fewer in number, and well-trained technicians are increasingly hard to find. One aftermarket service magazine puts the shortage of competent techs in the United States at more than one million, and as many as 15,000 new positions are opening yearly.

At LBW Community College we strive to train students to become qualified, successful auto technicians by providing knowledge and capability, primarily through hands-on work, but also through interactive classroom and virtual vehicle experiences.
