Amended Course Descriptions

Beginning Fall 2020

HAH 200  -  Emergency Assessment & Intervention

Credit Hours: 3, Contact Hours: 4

Division: Health Occupations

A comprehensive study of the concepts and practices of first aid techniques. The course provides training for emergency care through assessment, critical thinking, implementation, documentation, and evaluation. It also addresses situations when injury or sudden illness becomes a threat to life, or problems develop that endanger physical or psychological well-being. Certification for CPR for the Professional Rescuer and a certificate of completion for the Emergency Medical Responder course will be obtained by students following successful completion of the course. This is a standalone course and students that successfully complete the course will not be eligible to test with the State of Michigan or NREMT for certification at this time. Group 2 Course.


Beginning Fall 2020

AVF 232 -  Commercial Flight II  

Credit Hours: 3Contact Hours: 3

Division: Aviation

A flight course structured to provide a dual and solo flight hours to partially fulfill the flight hour requirements for the FAA Commercial Pilot Certificate. This course will provide a review of VFR cross country navigation procedures and introduce the student to multi-engine flight. Course requires 35 flight hours, 3.0 hours of pre/post, and 27.8 hours of ground instruction. Hourly rates effective March 2018 are $59/hour for single engine ground instruction and $69/hour for multi-engine flight instruction and $230/hour for the single aircraft and flight instructor and $340/hour for the multi-engine aircraft and instructor. Group 2 course.

Required Prerequisites: AVF 230 - may be taken concurrently.

Amended Program Requirements

Beginning Fall 2020


The NMC engineering curriculum parallels engineering programs offered during the first two years at other colleges and universities. Traditionally, these first two years emphasize the tools and theories that provide background for all engineering fields. Completion of the certificate program requirements will prepare most students for transfer to a four-year engineering program.
