This 75-hour Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) prepares the student for entry-level prehospital care and is eligible to take the national certification exam as an Emergency Medical Responder. This is an introductory course to emergency medical care for individuals that in the course of their normal duties are likely to be the first individual on the scene of a medical emergency. The course will cover what should be done until the ambulance unit arrives and will include CPR, an overview of EMS systems, basic airway management, patient assessment, circulation and automatic defibrillation, illness, and injury prevention, childbirth and children and scene operations. The course was previously known as First Responder until the incorporation of the new curriculum and scope of practices.

Requirements
