Many health care facilities have reorganized, and the job roles within these systems have adjusted to provide care and services based on patient needs. As a result, employment opportunities have been created for the individual who has documented competencies in a variety of health care skills. Multi-Competency Health provides the flexibility for students to gain these important skills in health care. Many of these courses require a clinical placement. Fingerprinting and drug screening may be required for this clinical placement. The student has many options from which to choose in Multi-Competency Health.

Option 1: Associate Degree

An Associate of Applied Science degree (A.A.S.) or an Associate of Technical Studies degree (A.T.S.) in Multi-Competency Health can be obtained by:

A) Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) option: A student may earn this degree option by choosing two or more certificate programs, one of which must be in MULT, and the second may be in MULT, CLA (Clinical Laboratory Assisting), IEP (Deaf Studies) or NURC (Nursing Certificate programs), and at least six hours of technical options for a minimum of 30.5 technical hours. The student also completes the required general education courses, the required basic related courses, and the technical core courses. This degree allows the student to choose the multi-skill grouping of certificates that best suits his/her interests or employer needs.

B) Associate of Technical Studies (A.T.S.) option: “Designing Your Own Degree” (Refer to the Graduation Requirements for the A.T.S. in the College Catalog.)

Upon completion of the Associate Degree requirements in Multi-Competency Health, the graduate will be able to:

  • Use medical terminology correctly
  • Recognize life-threatening situations and take appropriate action
  • Demonstrate proficiency in technical skills
  • Work in a health care organization as a valued member of the health care team
  • Demonstrate interpersonal communication skills
  • Demonstrate effective infection control and safety practices.

Option 2: Certificate Programs

Many certificate programs are offered through the Multi-Competency Health Technology. These are focused, technical programs that result in a certificate of completion. The certificate programs range from those designed for anyone interested, to those that require completion of a health care program or specific licensure. Many area health care employers are interested in students who have successfully completed one or more of these certificates.

Option 3: Enhance or Complement Primary Skills in Nursing or Allied Health

There are many courses within Multi-Competency Health that can be taken in association with the degree option, as a complement to a certificate program, or as stand-alone courses that meet a professional need or personal interest. The requirements vary for each course. Many of these courses are open to all students and have no prerequisites. Others require completion of a health record, fingerprinting and drug screening.

Basic Electrocardiography (EKG) Certificate

A student completing the EKG Certificate will be able to:

  • Position leads and operate electrocardiographic equipment correctly
  • Obtain and prepare an electrocardiography recording for analysis by a physician
  • Recognize and correct technical errors in an electrocardiography recording
  • Provide safe, professional, direct patient contact, specifically in the areas of infection control, electrical safety, privacy and environmental safety.

*The following are required for admission to the EKG Certificate Program: Completion of a current health record, fingerprinting and drug screening.

  • Background check: Access the instructions for completing the background check by going to www.cscc.edu/phlebotomy. You should select "EKG" as your program when prompted.
  • Drug Screening: Access the instructions for completing the drug screening by going to www.cscc.edu/phlebotomy. You should select "EKG" as your program when prompted. The drug screening must be completed within 7 days after the start of the semester in which you are registered for MULT 1910
