You’ll learn essential EMT knowledge that will prepare you to succeed at passing the NREMT cognitive examination. Our course covers all of the essential topic areas needed to prepare for the NREMT exam. These include airway; respiration & ventilation; cardiology & resuscitation; trauma; medical; obstetrics/gynecology; EMS operations; and patient care for adult, geriatric, and pediatric patients.
This course covers the proper order, procedure, and practice required to master skills from the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians’ psychomotor competency requirements.
You’ll learn how to perform the following EMT psychomotor skills with confidence:
A practicing EMT will respond to life and death situations. These professionals often ride in ambulances provide patients with an immediate level of care. If a patient is experiencing trauma, an EMT will assess their condition, provide immediate care, stabilize the patient, and transport them to a healthcare facility.
No two days are ever the same when working as an EMT. Licensed EMTs work to make sure that a patient remains stable during transport until they receive further attention from a doctor, surgeon, or specialist. EMTs are typically some of the first healthcare workers to arrive on the scene after a 911 call comes in.
