Fort Morgan, CO. 01/23/14.  Morgan Community College (MCC) is the center for Emergency Medical Image: MCC’s Emergency Medical Services program provides students with clinical experiences in addition to in-classroom and hands-on work.Services (EMS) training in Eastern Colorado. MCC’s EMS education provides training for those wishing to enter the emergency medical field or continuing education for those already certified. Classes begin this week at the MCC Bennett Center, and in February at the Fort Morgan campus and Limon Center.

“MCC’s classes are set up for anyone interested in becoming involved in emergency medical services to work in ambulance services, hospitals, clinical settings, fire and police departments and those who would like the skills for their personal information and use,” says MCC EMS Coordinator Don Enninga, EMT-Intermediate.

Course offerings, such as Emergency Medical Responder (formerly First Responder), teach students the basics of what would be required of someone that is first on scene for a trauma or medical call. Lessons and techniques learned can be used by someone in the workplace, law enforcement, fire departments or personal use. MCC’s EMT course is approved by the Colorado State Department of Health and prepares graduates for all jobs where such a certificate is required by statute, for example, an ambulance attendant. 

Students interested in enrolling must fill out an application to enter into the program. The Emergency Medical Technician certificate program requires participants to undergo a background check and drug screening, as well as have the required immunizations. The program provides students with clinical experiences in addition to in-classroom and hands-on work so students will be prepared with entry level skills.                                     

These classes will end by May 9, 2014, after which students successfully completing the course will be eligible to take the National Registry practical and computer exams. Those wishing to become a Colorado certified EMT must pass the National Registry before they can apply for state certification. Students wanting to take the EMT course this semester can register in person or online at www.MorganCC.edu . Students must meet with Student Advisor Gwen Steffen; she can be reached at 970-542-3224 or Gwen.Steffen@MorganCC.edu.  For more information, students can also contact Don Enninga, EMS Coordinator, at 970-542-3201 or Don.Enninga@MorganCC.edu for more information.

For students that volunteer, work for, or are affiliated with agencies whose primary purpose is to deliver emergency medical and trauma care, there may be grants available to pay for tuition and fees for these courses. Other financial aid may also be available. Morgan Community College’s financial aid department can help determine eligibility for traditional financial aid.
