Signing Up for an EMT Course

This process is being updated! Come back to this page after April 1st for updated forms and details. 

ES131 and ES131L (EMT, part 1) are limited-entry: You do not register for them the same way you register for other classes at RCC.  In order to be enrolled in the EMT course, the online process described below must be completed first.

Entrance into an EMT 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. Classes often fill long before the listed due date, so start early.

  • You must first be admitted as an RCC student. Your RCC ID# is required on the registration form.
  • You must complete a placement test or provide proof of one of the following:
    • RCC Placement Test taken with scores placing into RD30, MTH20, and WR30 (or higher) OR
    • RCC courses completed at or above RD20, MTH20, and WR30 (or higher). OR
    • Submit transcripts from prior colleges showing completed coursework at or above these levels to the RCC Enrollment Services office.

Additional Requirements

Prior to the start of the EMT 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!
