ASSOCIATE OF APPLIED SCIENCE
DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES
San Juan College offers a wide range of occupational training programs and job enhancement classes to meet the
needs of the community. An Associate of Applied Science degree is designed to provide the educational skills and
practical experiences necessary to enable a student to enter an occupational field with employable skills after complet-
ing the two-year degree. Most AAS degrees are not intended to transfer to another institution, although many of the
individual courses may transfer. However, some AAS degrees are designed for transfer to select Bachelor of Applied
Science programs. Check with your advisor. All AAS degrees have core requirements and general education require-
ments. The general education requirements prepare the student to cope with life situations and job advancement.

                                Associate of Applied Science and Certificate

The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) programs offer courses for students interested in a career in pre-hospital emer-
gency medicine as well as basic emergency medical knowledge for use in other professions. The San Juan College EMS
program works to educate caring, competent, and compassionate medical professionals for service to the public.

The Emergency Medical Responder (formerly First Responder) course is the most basic level of formal emergency medical
training offered by the college. The course is designed for students who generally do not intend to pursue advanced train-
ing in EMS; however, it is a shorter course that can provide someone that is just interested in exploring EMS as a possible
career with a better insight into what the profession is about. The course is typically taken by students acting as “first re-
sponders” in industrial or volunteer settings. The course is designed to meet the US DOT National Standard Curriculum for
First Responder, the EMS Education Standards for Emergency Medical Responder, and the NM EMS training standards.
The course is NOT a prerequisite or corequisite to any other level of EMS training at SJC.

The Emergency Medical Technician (formerly EMT-Basic) certificate program offers the entry-level course for pursuing a
career in EMS. Entry-level students must complete the EMT certificate program in order to gain EMS licensure in the state
of New Mexico. The course is designed to meet the US DOT National Standard Curriculum for EMT-Basic, the EMS Educa-
tion Standards for Emergency Medical Technician, and the NM EMS training standards. EMT licensure/certification is a
prerequisite for higher level EMS programs.
                                                                                                     Continued on next page

                               The Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (formerly EMT-Intermediate) certificate program builds on the basic
                               knowledge of the EMT with additional training and skills. These courses may be taken by students wishing to gain ad-
                               ditional medical skills, but not necessarily wishing to pursue training as a paramedic. Field experience in EMS is strongly
                               encouraged between EMT certification and entry into the AEMT program. AEMT is a recommended prerequisite to the
                               paramedic program and is strongly recommended for students with limited field experience. The program is designed
                               to meet the US DOT National Standard Curriculum for EMT-Intermediate (1985), the EMS Education Standards for Ad-
                               vanced Emergency Medical Technician, and the NM EMS training standards.

                               Paramedics provide the highest level of care in the pre-hospital setting and are currently in high demand. Students
                               interested in pursuing training at the paramedic level have the option of both a certificate program and an Associate
                               of Applied Science degree. The AAS degree may be transferrable to four-year baccalaureate degree programs in EMS.
                               Those students wishing to transfer to a baccalaureate granting institution are strongly encouraged to check with their
                               advisor and carefully coordinate their coursework at San Juan College with the requirements of the transfer institu-
                               tion. A full Associate of Science degree option is also available for those students requiring it (see Associate of Science
                               section for additional information). This program is designed to meet the US DOT National Standard Curriculum for
                               EMT-Paramedic, the EMS Education Standards for Paramedic, and the NM EMS training standards.

                               Students who complete the certificate or degree programs are eligible to sit for the applicable levels of the New
                               Mexico state EMS licensure and/or the National Registry exams.

                               Additional specialty courses outside of the certificate and degree programs are also offered. Information on all EMS
                               program courses can be found in the Course Descriptions section of the catalog, by contacting the EMS Program office,
                               or by visiting the program website.

                               Note: The student must complete each course in the curriculum with a C or better to remain in and graduate from the

                               The Associate of Fire Science degree is designed to give students the essential educational and hands-on elements
                               needed for a career in firefighting. Students will receive training in the basic concepts of firefighting and will partici-
                               pate in actual hands-on evolutions that will give them real experience in the firefighting career field. This program is
                               extremely physically demanding and requires participants to successfully complete evolutions where the students
                               operate in one of the most aggressive atmospheres that a human being can survive.

                               Note: The student must complete each course in the curriculum with a C or better to graduate from the program.

                               The following must be received by the application deadline, for classes starting in the fall of the same year.
                                 1. Submit a completed SJC Nursing Program Application to the Nursing Department. Program applications are avail-
                                    able in the Nursing Department or on the SJC website during the open application period. Contact the Nursing De-
                                    partment for the application deadline date.
                                 2. Submit official transcripts from high school and any other colleges to the San Juan College Admission/Records
                                    office, 4601 College Boulevard, Farmington, NM 87402. The Admissions Office will evaluate previous college tran-
                                    scripts for possible transfer credit.
                                 3. Submit TEAS score results to the Nursing Department.
                                 4. Submit a record of attendance for the nursing information session.
                               Enrollment in nursing courses (NURS prefix) is limited to those who have been accepted into the nursing program.
                               Students may enroll in non-nursing general education courses prior to admission to the program. (These courses
                               are all those listed in the curriculum that do not have a NURS prefix). Taking non-nursing general education courses
                               that apply to the nursing curriculum does not guarantee acceptance to the program. A grade of C or higher must be
                               achieved in chemistry and every course required in the curriculum. A list of approved electives is available in the nursing
                               department and on the nursing website.

                               Associate of Applied Science and Certificate

The Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal Systems degree is appropriate for students who want to earn a degree in the re-
newable energy field and who want to pursue further education. The Renewable Energy Program at San Juan College
gives the student a solid foundation in the science, as well as in the design and installation techniques required to work
with renewable energy technologies. Students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to design and safely install
electrical energy systems based on the latest photovoltaic and power conditioning equipment as well as the design and
application of passive and active solar systems.

                                                 One-Year Certificate
San Juan College’s Renewable Energy program offers a one-year certificate in Photovoltaic System Design and Installa-
tion, which is appropriate for students who already have a college degree, or who currently work in a related industry.

                                            Associate of Applied Science
To earn the Associate of Applied Science degree, students must complete the course requirements for the one-year
certificate in addition to general education courses. Students may enroll in general education courses prior to admis-
sion to the program, but taking the general education courses that apply to the Renewable Energy curriculum does not
guarantee acceptance into the program.
                                                                                               Continued on next page

Note: This program requires that the student purchase his/her own tools. To obtain a list of the required tools, contact
the Automotive Department.

Note: If the T-TEN program starts in an odd numbered year, the first co-op will be in the first semester. If the T-TEN
program starts in an even numbered year, the first co-op will be in the second semester.

                               Association’s list of essential and recommended tasks. Students who successfully complete the associate’s degree are
                               eligible to sit for the National Veterinary Technology Examination and/or similar regional board exams in their state or
                               province. The associate degree program is fully accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association and course-

                               erinary practice with regular web-based assessment and is designed specifically to accommodate a student’s work and
                               personal schedule. Courses are completed online with labs and clinical assignments being conducted at a veterinary
                               practice in the student’s area.

                                             and Certificates

The Welding/Metal Fabrication Program stresses the practical applications of welding on plate and pipe in all positions
and the necessary theory to support those skill levels. Welding skills are developed by using the following processes:
oxy-acetylene, stick electrode, gas metal arc welding (GMAW), and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). Support courses
in mathematics, blueprint reading, drafting and metallurgy are included in the program.

Note: A student must earn a grade of C or higher in all courses required for the program in order to receive a degree or
certificate.

Attendance is an intricate part of the learning process, thus, poor attendance can contribute to poor student success.

All courses must be taken in course number sequence. Below is the recommended course sequencing for first time
students:

AAS = Associate of Applied Science
1-Yr = Welding One-Year Certificate
2-Yr = Welding Two-Year Certificate
