3.

Students completing "REQUIREMENTS" have fulfilled the requirements for this Core area.

4.

Students who have not already completed Basic EMT and Paramedic certificate programs must select from CHSE 117, EMTA 105, and EMTA 114 to satisfy Choice 2.  Students who have already completed Basic EMT and Paramedic certificate programs may elect EMTA 222 to satisfy Choice 2.
