ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS

Orange County EMT strives to remain consistent with the high standards of the National Standard Curriculum and the State of California; therefore, we have elected to accept the Department of Transportation requirements for program prerequisites of CPR for Healthcare Provider. Below is an Excerpt from the National Standard Curriculum:

“Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) — To meet the time requirements of this revised EMT-Basic Curriculum, CPR should be a prerequisite. Basic life support is an essential component of any EMS educational experience and this class should be successfully completed prior to entering the EMT-Basic program. This may be accomplished by various alternatives:

– Set a time prior to the beginning of the EMT-Basic program and require all
– Students seeking to enter that program to participate or test out.
– Note: Although CPR is a prerequisite, it should be routinely practiced and integrated throughout the entire instruction of the EMT-Basic. Skill stations should be created to reinforce knowledge and skills.

Orange County EMT will be offering a 6 hour CPR for Healthcare Provider course tentatively scheduled for he second class meeting prior to commencing formal EMT instruction. OCEMT has a goal of producing the highest quality candidate. In our profession, one must be a law-abiding citizen and have the desire to help those in need.

We believe that instilling these principles from the beginning will only help to build them for success.

Student Tuition Recovery Fund Disclosure

The Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) was established by the legislature to protect any California residents who attends a private post secondary institution from losing money if you prepaid tuition and suffered a financial loss as a result of the school closing, failing to live up to its enrollment agreement, or refusing to pay a court judgment. To be eligible for STRF, you must be a “California resident” and reside in California at the time the enrollment agreement is signed or when you receive lessons at a California mailing address from an approved institution offering correspondence instruction.

Students who are temporarily residing in California for the sole purpose of pursuing an education, specifically those who hold students visas, are not considered a “California resident”. To qualify for STRF reimbursement you must file a STRF application within one year of receiving notice from the Bureau that the school is closed. If you do not receive notice from the Bureau, you have four years from the date of closure to file a STRF application. If a judgment is obtained you must file a STRF application within two years of the final judgment. It is important that you keep copies of the enrollment agreement, financial aid papers, receipts or any other information that documents the monies paid to the school. Questions regarding the STRF may be directed to the Bureau for Private Post secondary Education:
