The Emergency Medical Responder is an integral part of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) System. The term "Emergency Medical Responder" is applied to the first individual who arrives at the scene regardless of the individual's type of credential. This course provides students with the core information, skills, and attitudes to function in the capacity of a first responder. Students attend the EMS Skills Lab to demonstrate, practice, and verify competency in basic EMS skills. In addition to the scheduled class lab hours, students are required to attend TEAM Day, complete CPR training, and verify competency in the EMS Skills Lab.
