Aravaipa Campus adds EMS, welding classes

WINKELMAN, Ariz. – Central Arizona College’s Aravaipa Campus will add three new classes this spring for those students interested in emergency medical services or welding.

Each class is $72 per credit hour for Arizona residents; course material and lab fees may apply.

The Aravaipa Campus is located north of Tucson between Winkelman and Mammoth along Highway 77 in the rural mountains of beautiful eastern Pinal County at the entrance to the Aravaipa Canyon.

For those looking for a career in emergency medical services, EMS 125 – Emergency Medical Technician is an eight-credit course that will be held Saturdays beginning Jan. 19 from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.

The course follows the current National Standard Curriculum and Arizona State Department of Health Services EMS Division state statutes. The curriculum emphasizes an assessment-based format with the focus on airway control, and rescuer and patient safety. Infection control is addressed at every level of care.

New skills have been added to include patient-assisted medications and use of an AED. This training program is a state-approved program with a medical director and is updated to state standards as required by the ADHS.

WLD 120 – Oxy-Acetylene Welding is a three-credit course scheduled for Mondays from 6-10:10 p.m. beginning Jan. 28.

The fundamentals of oxy-acetylene welding include equipment use and safety procedures in brazing, cast iron, silver soldering, running all-directional beads and machine cutting.

To supplement WLD 120, WLD 121 – Shielded Metal Arc Welding I will be offered Tuesdays from 6-10:10 p.m. This three-credit course teaches students the fundamentals of arc welding using manual setting machines and digital machines with emphasis on running beads in all positions, identification of electrodes, hand flame cutting with the torch, and identification of metal.

To register for any of these classes or speak with an academic advisor, please contact the Aravaipa Campus at 520-357-2800 or 866-869-6507.
