Providing emergency care is of utmost importance in a society, whether the one responding be an average citizen or a highly trained professional. Several classes are beginning this summer in Sandhills Community College Continuing Education’s Public Safety division.
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. Hybrid classes are a combination of online and face-to-face instruction.
Health and Medical Services
“EMT-Basic” prepares students to provide emergency care for the sick and injured. Students will learn to respond to a variety of emergency medical situations. Upon successful completion, the student can sit for the state certification exam. The Course requirements include a copy of your high school or GED diploma by first night of class. Additional costs for course specific clinicals. The pre-requisites for this class are a 11th-grade reading level on TABE reading test given first night of class.

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.
A fall semester flightPath publication will be mailed to all Moore and Hoke County homes mid-July and will contain information about the Continuing Education classes set to begin August through December and all curriculum programs.
Curriculum classes will begin on August 16. In addition to the traditional 16-week semester, there will be two eight-week sessions, one beginning August 16 and the second October 14. Students can take a mix of full-semester classes alongside eight-week sessions.
