For either of those courses, are you able to buy the textbook a month or two in advance and go through it on your own before classes start? That helped me a lot -- I had read worked through the whole textbook before the first day of class, so that helped to make it a lot easier to absorb the material the way the instructors were teaching it. The first time through the Anatomy chapter will be difficult for you, but later chapters keep re-using the material from the anatomy chapter, so by the time you get to the end of the book, you are a lot more comfortable with it.he said that students typically spend 3 hours of studying for every 1 hour of in the classroom. I know people have bills to pay, but that kind of time commitment sounds kinda remarkable.
Wow... As someone who went to EMT class in high school in the 90s, and has taught EMT classes that are two nights a week with the occasional Saturday, as well as someone who is taking a non-EMS class at the local CC Monday and Wednesday from 6:30 to 930pm next month, while working full time, and part time, and studying for a work certification, I have to ask this: are you ready for the commitment of taking a class? Do you have the maturity and dedication to put forth the time and energy for an EMT class?It's puzzling to me when people say these classes are designed for people who work full time day jobs. I asked an instructor from one course, and he said that students typically spend 3 hours of studying for every 1 hour of in the classroom. I know people have bills to pay, but that kind of time commitment sounds kinda remarkable. Anyway, I didn't know if there was any benefit to spending more time in the classroom, or spending that time on self-guided study. I guess it all depends.
How times change...13 years ago when I qualified my course was 3 days a week for 5 months!!!Really doesn’t matter. They typically offer the night courses for students who already have a full time 9-5 job. It allows them to get off work and then do a night class.
There are all sorts of EMT class schedules. 1 day a week for 16 weeks. 2 night classes a week for 16 weeks. 2 days a week for 8 weeks. There are even some all day 5 days a week for 3 weeks.
Find the one that works best for your schedule. If they all work then you can try to ask around for recommendations on the program itself. You can also compare the prices of the programs.
I just started my bachelors this semester. I lucked out and I really only have 2 chapters of reading, 2 tests, and 1 essay per week until midterm.After a two decade layoff from school, I’ll admit going back for my bachelor’s degree seems slightly daunting with a FT job and 4 kids, but I am easing into it and have always been good at time and task management so I am trying to remain optimistic about it.
An EMT course seems like such a stretch of a comparison in contrast, especially with the variety of types of courses that they offer now. That said, I can relate to the workload worries.
So far, the workload seems the same, but I also just started my 1st semester. I anticipate some things will pick up along the way, which is expected. I opted to start PT this semester, but the company makes it pretty hard not to take advantage of educational opportunities.I just started my bachelors this semester. I lucked out and I really only have 2 chapters of reading, 2 tests, and 1 essay per week until midterm.
Should i take an EMT cert course that is 2 nights a week only, or 2 nights a week plus all day one day per week? Is either better?
