What happens after I become an instructor?
Emergency Medical Responders provide immediate lifesaving care to critical patients who access the emergency medical services system. EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport. Emergency Medical Responders are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, Emergency Medical Responders perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.
Emergency Medical Responders include
The following Agencies are currently running EMR programs. Contact them for more information.
An Emergency Medical Technician provides out of hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. The EMT has the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life threatening emergencies.
Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response system, under medical direction. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance.
Emergency Medical Technicians are a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system.

The AHA’s ACLS course builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS skills, emphasizing the importance of preventing cardiac arrest, early and continuous high-quality CPR, and high-performing teams. The course reflects science and education from the 2020 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).
After successfully completing this course, students should be able to
The PALS Provider Course aims to improve outcomes for pediatric patients by preparing healthcare providers to effectively recognize and intervene in patients with respiratory emergencies, shock, and cardiopulmonary arrest by using high‐performance team dynamics and high‐quality individual skills. The course includes a series of case scenario practices with simulations that reinforce important concepts. Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the multiple-choice exam with a minimum score of 84%. Topics include:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to
The PEARS Provider Course teaches how to use a systematic approach to quickly assess, recognize the cause, and stabilize pediatric patients in emergency situations. Students interact with real patient cases to assess and stabilize pediatric patients experiencing respiratory emergencies, shock emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest. This includes applying basic life support, following the pediatric systematic approach, and applying high-performance team dynamics. The PEARS course prepares students to provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until a child can be transferred to an advanced life support provider.
