AAOS / Emergency Care and Safety Institute Emergency Medical Responder

Course Description: Previously referred to as First Responder, the Emergency Medical Responder (EMF) course is the first of four tiers for professional emergency personnel. The program focuses on the knowledge and skills necessary for the first person(s) on the scene of an emergency. Whether medical or trauma in nature, upon successful completion of this program, you will have the skills to adequately assess and care for a wide variety of illnesses and injuries until advanced level responders arrive. Upon successful completion of this course, participants are able to challenge the PA State Certification practical and written exam to become PA State Certified Emergency Medical Responders. Furthermore, because this is the first of 4 tiers of training, successful completion will allow the participant to take a bridge course from EMR to Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) rather than taking the entire EMT course. And with the experience of functioning as an EMR first, an EMT course will be easier to manage.

Target Audience: This course is designed for individuals that are most likely to be first to the scene of an emergency. This includes law enforcement personnel, fire fighters, rescue squad personnel, athletic trainers, industry first response personnel, camp counselors, and laypersons in general.

Certification: AAOS Emergency Care and Safety Institute certification valid for a period of 2 years.

Course Length: 60-75 hours

Course Cost: $725

(includes ebooks and materials; printed textbook an additional $100)
