Students in the EMT class do hands-on work such as performing CPR on a dummy. The class can make someone certified in CPR and can also lead to a future in the medical field. Senior Jamilah Philip-Johnson said, “Being in the EMT course is different from any class I’ve had before. The beginning of the year was mainly learning from book, which was important since we need to know specific terms. Now that we are nearing the end of the year, we have way more hands-on learning.
