Emergency Medical Responder

The Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course prepares the student to provide initial stabilizing care to the sick or injured prior to the arrival of the Emergency Services Professionals. 

Health services account for one in every 12 jobs in Georgia. HCCA is actively recruiting and preparing Houston County students to help meet this demand.

Emergency Medical Responder pathway courses include:

  • Medical Terminology
  • Structure and Function of the Human Body
  • Emergency Medical Responder

Successful completion and passing with C or higher provides the student with a Technical Certificate of Credit (TCC) from Central Georgia Technical College. This pathway can be completed in one year. 

EMR at HCCA gives students 11 college credit hours. 

Students can also obtain CPR/First Aid with the American Heart Association training, as well as a certificate for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

For more information about this program, please see your counselor.
