Signing up for the AEMT/EMT -Intermediate Course

The Advanced EMT and EMT-Intermediate combined course has a unique structure and you do not register for these courses the same way you register for other classes at RCC.  In order to be enrolled, the online process described below must be completed first.

If you are already licensed as an Advanced EMT (AEMT) and want to complete The EMT-Intermediate portion only, contact Jim Shaw at jshaw@roguecc.edu

DETAILS on Courses and Credits required

Entrance into the AEMT course is not a competitive process. The classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis BUT ONLY WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE STEPS OUTLINED BELOW. We will not “hold” a spot for any student whose documentation is incomplete. 

Prerequisites

  • You must first be admitted as an RCC student. Your RCC ID# is required on the registration form.
  • You must be a currently licensed EMT or Advanced EMT in Oregon.
Signing Up
  1. Establish an account with Castle Branch, an organization that RCC uses to review immunization records and other documents.
    1. Go to www.castlebranch.com 
    2. Select "Place order"
    3. Enter package code: RP30im
  2. Complete (typed, not hand written) all required forms (available on their site).
  3. Collect complete records of all required immunizations (listed on their site).
  4. Upload all required documents to your Castle Branch account.

After Castle Branch has verified that the documents are complete, we will send you an access code that you will use to register for these courses.

NOTE: If you purchased an account with Castle Branch (or Certified Background) prior to April 2018, you will need to contact them and ask them to transfer your account to the 2018 RP30im Tracker. Some additional or updated documents may be required.

If you have questions about your Castle Branch account, problems uploading documents, or need information on why your records weren't accepted, contact Castle Branch directly (email address and phone numbers are on their page).

If you have questions for RCC about this process, contact Clinical Coordinator Rusty Riis at rriis@roguecc.edu.

If you have questions about the AEMT and/or EMT-Intermediate class, contact Jim Shaw at jshaw@roguecc.edu 

Additional Requirements

Prior to the start of the AEMT course, you will also be required to complete a 10-panel drug screen and pass a criminal background investigation ($76.75). DO NOT COMPLETE AT THIS TIME!

If you have any questions about your background and whether it will prevent you from completing the mandatory clinical  component, contact Clinical Coordinator Rusty Riis at rriis@roguecc.edu
