Our EMT is the comprehensive, evidence-based, emergency medicine course that prepares the student to handle the assessment, treatment, and transport of injury and illness encountered in the 911 system and more.
We have developed an integrated Hybrid structure using Online lessons to build knowledge and depth, Zoom Classes for quizzing and review and this allows class time to focus on skills and scenarios. You’ll be taught everything it takes to provide assessment and care with the tools of the trade for treating both trauma and medical problems. Learn how to handle life the threats of airway, respiratory, and circulatory problems, stop bleeds, wound care, fractures, head/spine injury, torso trauma, cold/heat injuries, bites, heart attacks, diabetic emergencies, strokes, ambulance operations, HazMat scenes, and much more. Our courses are taught by people who have done what they teach. All students spend time working in clinical settings at hospitals, and ambulances. You will be in an active, dynamic experiential process of lecture, skill labs, scenarios, mock drills, and team-building, all crafted to create the confidence to act when someone is in need.
This new structure allows us to move more quickly without rushing because the Online lessons are done at home as are the Zoom classes, so you don’t have to drive to class for 3-4 months.
This is an NHBEMS approved course, when complete students will be qualified for the National Registry (NR) EMT computer-based and practical exams giving them the NREMT Certification. The NREMT certification is recognized in ME, NH, VT, and most of the US.
This course is two weekends: October 15-17 & October 22-24, 2021.
The Wilderness Medicine Module is built for the trained provider: (*OEC, *EMR, EMT, AEMT, Paramedic, Nurse, NP, PA, MD, DO) anyone who has training in medicine and wants to learn how to offer a high level of care in remote settings, with improvised equipment perhaps working alone. Focus is on taking what the provider knows and puts them in the wild environment performing their familiar skills with new “twists” as well as looking at the role of ALS in the back-country. The wilderness produces a broad spectrum of traumatic injuries, soft tissue (cuts/scrapes, burns/blisters), musculoskeletal injuries, injuries of heat, cold, altitude, and all sorts of bites, stings, and stabs. Learn the predictable and preventable principles that would minimize injury/illness and how to handle problems like, reduction of dislocations, improvised splinting, cleaning and dressing wounds to prevent infection, as well as learning to create drinkable water, build an improvised litter, and the “magic” hypothermia wrap. This course prepares you to organize and perform a back-country rescue. Learn how to go into the wild prepared and build a new standard of care that prepares you to go from deep in the wild, to the road, and to the hospital in the truck. (*EMR and *OEC Techs will earn a Wilderness First Responder certification).44 hours, usually 4 days and 1 or 2 evenings.
This NREMT refresher for the EMT and Advanced EMT levels covers all required National Continuing Competency Program (NCCP) topics. This 20-hour program is predominantly a skill-based program that covers each of the topics through short cognitive presentation and skill labs and scenarios as the best pathway to continued competency, the key to continuing education. From airway management to overdose to neonatal resuscitation all topics cover assessment and treatment modalities, with emphasis on new protocols and care modalities. Students will receive a course completion certificate for verification of NREMT compliance.
Dates: November 29 to December 12, 2021, Daily Mon.-Sat. 8:30 am to 5:30 pm
Location: Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH.
Course cost includes TKS WEMT Manual, Lab Fees, AAOS EMT Text 12th Edition, AHA BLS CPR Certification, Clinical Liability Policy, All Supplies.
Early Registration Discount: Applications received by September 1, 2021 will receive a $100 discount.
Our “NEW” Wilderness EMT is the comprehensive, evidence-based, urban, and wilderness medicine course that prepares the student to handle injury and illness from city streets to the world’s wild and remote places. In 2020 we built a Hybrid system integrating Online Lessons and ZOOM Classes, with classic In-Class Lessons. This format creates more productive ways to cover Cognitive information and save Skills and Scenarios for in-person review sessions. You will be taught how to assess and care for patients with improvised tools, how to rescue someone from deep in the woods, and then climb into the ambulance and know how to work in the back of the truck. From emergencies to staying healthy in the wilderness, students learn to assess people in challenging conditions, handle life threats of airway, respiratory, and circulatory problems, stop bleeds, long-term wound care, sprains, strains, fractures, head/spine injury, cold/heat injuries, bites, stings, altitude problems, dive injuries, organizing a backcountry rescue, and much more. Students learn the predictable and preventable behaviors that are the usual cause of sick and injured folks. Leadership and wilderness rescue are woven in as an integral part of preparedness and response.
Our courses are taught by people who have done what they teach. We teach “practicable principles” and not just on what to do, but how to do it. Simultaneously you will be learning about the urban landscape of EMS, how the system is built, and what it is like to work in the ambulance. All students spend time working in clinical settings and ambulances.
The “Hybrid/Immersion” schedule allows the student to move through the training process full-time, completing the 170+ hour curriculum in just 2 weeks rather than 3+ month programs. More importantly, because the student completes the course more quickly, they are available for service or employment sooner. There are 17 Online Lessons that cover 27 topics that students can watch on their schedules at home with 2 pre-course ZOOM Classes.
This is an NHBEMS approved course, upon successful completion students are to take the WEMT written and Practical exams, which will qualify them for the National Registry (NREMT) Computer-Based and NH/NR Practical Exams giving them both urban and wilderness certifications. The NREMT certification is recognized in all of New England and most of the US.
