The course will be taught by Terry Dossett on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-9 p.m. FRS 2061 prepares students for national testing required for EMTs and for entry into the college’s Emergency Medical Services - Paramedic program.
 
Students interested in any health career field may also benefit from taking AHS 115 – Medical Terminology. Taught by Jennifer Finley on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., the course offers a study of anatomical, physiological and pathological terminology with emphasis on work structures and definition of root words, suffixes, and prefixes from Greek and Latin. Additional emphasis is placed on spelling and pronunciation. No previous knowledge of Greek or Latin is required.
