UCSB PaCE has expanded the program by partnering with Cottage Health Hospital for Clinical Observation Hours. This new partnership offers students a broader experience in a hospital emergency setting, in addition to their time spent on an ambulance.

The classes are taught with state-of-the-art equipment, such as high-fidelity manikins, to provide students with the highest degree of learner support. The manikins provide real-time readings of chest resistance, air flow, and visualization of air as it flows, making the learning experience both interactive and informative. Additionally, the program includes CPR Certification and MCI (Mass Casualty Incident) Drills and Vehicle Extrication, to ensure that students are well-prepared for any possible scenario, including the MCI Triage process.
