Paramedic and EMT
CCE offers hands-on education for pre-hospital programs, including Paramedic and EMT.

The College of Continuing Education (CCE) at Sacramento State offers a variety of pre-hospital programs, including Paramedic and EMT courses. While these programs have been in existence for 9 years, educating and placing first responders throughout the state of California, many potential learners are prevented from applying because traditional financial aid is not available for students enrolled in these programs.  

 

For example, the Paramedic program costs approximately $13,500 and, unfortunately, that creates a barrier for many who are interested in entering this field. CCE now offers scholarships to program applicants who would otherwise not be able to pursue this educational program, which is the only Paramedic course offered in the entire CSU system. 

 

 

Both programs ensure qualified and exceptionally prepared graduates through the use of intensive, hands-on learning (Paramedic and EMT courses are just two of only a handful of in-person courses taking place on campus, allowing for simulation learning to take place). Learners work in small groups, putting their freshly minted skills to the test on robotic mannequins and one another. An instructor is present, either nearby or behind glass, to help narrate throughout the scenario and throw in a few curveballs. Supplies such as gauze, interactive mannequins, defibrillators, catheters, and backboards, along with copious amounts of PPE, prepare learners for emergency responses in the future.


Your gift to support scholarships and supplies for CCE’s pre-hospital programs provides opportunities for individuals to complete their education in this demanding field.
