Important Spring 2016 (EMT) Information!
The EMT program – and you, our students - are very important
to College of the Desert and we apologize again for the need to cancel EMT 084
this Spring 2016 semester.
In an effort to allow you to continue your educational plans
and not delay graduation from COD, we have partnered with Copper Mountain
College, our neighboring institution.
Copper Mountain College is currently offering an accelerated
EMT course that begins in March so there is time to register. I urge you to do so promptly because seats
will go quickly.
Copper Mountain is also working to offer an additional late
start course this semester, it is currently pending approval.
Students who are interested must enroll at Copper Mountain
and meet all of the institutional requirements there. For further information, please contact Chris
Gotoski, Health Science Administrative Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org or 760 366-3791 ext.
COD is moving forward swiftly toward certification and it is
our hope that we will be offering EMT courses again this summer.
Again, we regret this inconvenience.
