Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) 2018

The EMR program is designed for individuals entering into the Paramedicine Profession. If you are interested are in becoming an OH&S Officer, volunteer fire departments, workplace first aid attendant or for general interest, check out our Professional Responder Programs - Advanced First Aid and Medical First Responder.

The AHASTI EMR is a 120 hour in class all inclusive program that prepares future EMS practitioners for the EMS community. It is structured to train students to work as members of the EMS community through lecture and lab practice, with additional study and homework time after each session. Students are expected to have 100% attendance and the expectations of professionalism and integrity will be assessed throughout.

Topic areas are first presented by examining the theory related to a particular condition followed by the practical aspect of emergency care. The course outline will detail the order of the presentation topics to allow for advanced reading of topics prior to delivery of lectures. EMR candidates will also complete and receive a Canadian Red Cross Health Care Provider level of CPR certification during the program, as well as complete the Professional Driver Improvement Course through the Alberta Safety Council. The last day of the course will be devoted to a written exam and practical testing.

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.
