The Emergency Medical Dispatcher (EMD) is now clearly recognized as an essential component of effective EMS systems. Proper and timely training, continuing education, and sound medical protocol help EMDs deliver quality care to the public before anyone else can.
This course provides the basic and advanced concepts that promote a safe, effective, and professional EMD program. The course was originally developed by Jeff Clawson, M.D., and is certified by the National Academy of Emergency Medical Dispatch (NAEMD).
Over the past decade, NAEMD Certification Courses have become the standard for EMD training. This course meets or exceeds all national criteria set by the American Society for Testing and Materials., the U.S. Department of Transportation, the National Association of EMS Physicians, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and others.
