Public Safety Classes to Begin Soon at SCC

Paramedic poses outside an ambulance.Classes to help students successfully complete EMT-Basic training and CPR for healthcare providers will be offered through Sandhills Community College Continuing Education’s Public Safety division this March.

These classes require face-to-face interaction. CDC recommendations and precautions for a safe environment will be stringently followed. The number of students in a classroom has been reduced to allow for distancing and students are required to wear a face/mouth covering when on campus.

“EMT-Success Prep” prepares students for the vocabulary and study skills for success in the EMT-Basic class. This class is designed to help students score higher on the EMT-Basic Entrance Test. “EMT-Success Prep” is not a prerequisite to EMT-Basic.

“EMT-Success Prep” will be held on Mondays, March 1-May 10 from 6-9 p.m.

“CPR for Healthcare Providers” is for healthcare professionals who need to know how to perform CPR and other lifesaving skills in a wide variety of in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings.

Held on Saturday, March 20 from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., “CPR for Healthcare Professionals” will cost $50 plus a $4 card fee.

Campus Health Precautions

For the continued safety and well-being of students, faculty, and staff, Sandhills Community College has converted as many classes as possible to online or hybrid (online plus limited face-to-face interaction). Face/mouth coverings are required when on campus. Additional hand sanitizing stations have been installed and a deep cleaning is being carried out each evening using EPA-approved disinfectants and foggers. A campus-wide sanitizing wipe down of door pulls and light switches is carried out twice each weekday and the use of water fountains has been discontinued. Service desk shields have been installed in high traffic areas.

Summer Semester

Additional Continuing Education classes will begin in April and plans for summer semester classes are currently being made with a full slate of classes being offered.

Summer semester curriculum (college credit) classes are open to current and new students. Local students attending colleges outside of the area are welcome to take courses this summer at SCC. Credits can transfer back to the university, saving students time and money. New students can apply online, and an advisor will assist in registering for classes. Current or returning students may register using Self-Service or by meeting with their Advisor.

High school juniors and seniors can take SCC classes at no cost by enrolling in the Career and College Program (CCP). The program has 47 Career Technical pathways, 13 Continuing Education pathways, and 54 college transfer courses.
