the division exams with a 75% You will only be allowed one retest for each division
exam. Any quiz which you receive less than 75% must be retaken until you can achieve
a 75% or a total of three retests are given. Your first grade will stand as your mark
in the records. Retests are likely to be different questions on the same topics.
3. You must pass the ACLS portion of the program. Failure of the ACLS portion will
result in failure of the EMT-P Program.

retests of each failed station are allowed. Failing more than 2 (two) stations is an
automatic failure from the program. You must pass all of the advanced practical exam
stations to be allowed to take the final written certification exam.
One of the most important traits of an EMT-P is the ability to accept responsibilities.
The course faculty is responsible for presenting course materials and handing out
reading and study assignments. It is the student's sole responsibility to put adequate
study time and effort into learning the material. If you are having problems with the
material presented, it is your responsibility to bring this to the attention of your
instructor. Every effort will be made to give you the assistance you need, but the
ultimate responsibility rests with you. We have additional books that present materials
in a different manner from the main text. In some areas we have additional assignments,
handouts, etc., that may make subjects clearer.
There is more material to present than is possible to cover in the allotted class time.
It is very important to do all reading and homework assignments before coming to class.
The lectures will be much more meaningful if you read the material first.
Medicine is not an exact science. If you require a program where everything is black and
white, this program may not be for you. There will be several areas where there is no
single right answer or method of accomplishing a task. Often you will have to make
decisions based on circumstances, your patient's condition and what you have available at
the moment, understanding "why", and the basis for "how". You may find areas where the
textbook contradicts itself or where it is very vague on an issue. You will also find
doctors that radically disagree with each other and lecturers who have different opinions
on the same subject. The protocols under which EMT-Ps operate are constantly being
revised. Sometimes what was the right way last year is no longer the correct way this
year. Attempt not to overreact if a disagreement occurs. Refer contradictions or
differences to your Instructor if you are confused. He will attempt to guide you based
on current national, state and local guidelines. If he does not know the answer to your
question, he will make every effort to find the answer.
This class is the 10th MCC EMT-P Program. We have worked very hard to provide you
with special training experiences outside the PSTF. Your conduct and appearance will
decide the future of our next classes and the acceptance of Paramedics in the area.
During any activity associated with the Paramedic Program, you are required to be dressed
appropriately, have a neat and clean appearance, wear in a visible location above the
waist, your MCC ID Badge picture forward, and will use language and conduct consistent
with a Health Care Professional.
