Our EMR course is a 140 hour blend of independent study and instructor guided learning. The 90 hour classroom work is structured to train students to work as members of the EMS community through lecture and lab practice. Students are expected to complete a minimum of 50 hours of independent home study prior to the first day, using the course material provided, to round out the learning process. Topic areas are first presented by examining the theory related to a particular injury followed by the practical aspect of emergency care for that injury. The course outline provides the order of presentation of topics to allow you to study applicable sections prior to delivery of lectures. The last day of the course will be devoted to a written exam and practical testing.
The program offered by the Alberta Health and Safety Training Institute is a high quality, practical-skill based program with a self study component, supplemented by interactive multi-media presentations and internet based review. Our goal is to get the student comfortable as an EMS member in the community. Our professional instructor base is made up of experienced Emergency Medical Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedic personnel who are highly dedicated to their students.
