PLEASE NOTE: FALL 2021 MEMS-350 WILL UTILIZE CANVAS AS A LEARNING PLATFORM REQUIRING students to use computers and/or laptops. We will meet face to face (F2F) for psychomotor and cognitive examinations. 

First Day of Face-to-Face (F2F) class will be Wednesday, August 25th at the West Campus Modesto Junior College, Sierra Hall, room 132. Please arrive 20 minutes early for screening process at the blue booth next to Sierra Hall.

First of all, I would like to address the COVID-19 precautions.  COVID-19 is a worldwide pandemic that has affected families, communities, businesses, as well as our daily living. Safety standards and practices have been established by the YCCD District, MJC, and the RFTC, to meet health and safety directives.  Our focus is on the health and safety of our students and employees. We ask that if you are ill; have a fever, nausea, vomiting, weakness, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or shortness of breath, you do not present to the face-to-face classes. We also ask that you arrive early and check in at the blue booth found outside of the building. Bring your own clean face mask, which you will be required to wear at all times during class session.  Exam gloves will be provided and required while performing skills.  You will find yourself in close proximity with others while conducting skills.

Section 0894: Class will begin on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at 0830-1235 at the West Campus, Sierra Hall 132. Please use Google if you need to.

(Instructor Jessica  Campa (Roberson) is the instructor for sections 1459 and 1460, if you are registered in these sections and have any inquiries please email her directly at  

We will be utilizing the Canvas platform as part of delivering the course material this semester. The psychomotor portion and assessments will take place in-person, along with three scheduled Saturdays (no make-ups or swapping classes).  You will be expected to practice at home and come prepared to each class. If you are a student with a learning condition, please go to MJC website and contact DSPS to start the process for accommodations Bring your laptop to the first day of class to establish your EMR accounts and commence your assignments. 

There is a student fee of $100. This is separate from the $50 material fee which pays for the CPR certification.  The student fee pays for electronic access to MyBradyLab, one uniform t-shirt, stethoscope/BP cuff and bag. The fee will be collected from you on the first day of class, no later than the second week. If you are a returning student you can purchase the t-shirt separately. You will also be required to wear a uniform shirt and expected to wear appropriate clothing and shoes for EMR class meetings. The pants should consist of dark loose colored pants, preferably navy-blue. Examples of inappropriate clothing; shorts, dirty or pants with holes, tight-fitted pants, capri pants, leggings, and exercise pants. Sweaters will be dark color, black or navy blue, free of designs or graphics. Appropriate shoes are closed toe, preferably black work boots. Failure to meet the requirements by the 3rd meeting, will prevent you from attending any in-person meetings, participating in psychomotor/cognitive testing, and possibly being unsuccessful in the course.

For further information please review your class schedule  and/or use Google search.

The EMR course material covered and pace at which it is presented requires attendance to all classes. Role will be taken at the beginning of class, during, and at the end.


Students may not miss more than eight hours of class time. Students are expected to be on time and ready to participate in the scheduled tasks. Tardiness will be cumulative. Three tardies will equal one class session absence. A tardy greater than one hour will equal to a one class session absence. Penalties accrued with more than eight hours of missed class, will include removal from the course and the STUDENT will be required to drop the course.


MANDATORY: Students will have access through their Canvas ($89.99)

Courses I Teach

  • First Responder with Healthcare Provider CPR,  MEMS-350
    EMRs provide immediate lifesaving care to critical patients who access the EMS. EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport. EMRs are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, EMRs perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.
