Emergency Medical Responders (EMRs) are an essential part of the foundation of Emergency Medical Services in Canada. EMRs are often associated with volunteer emergency services organizations, and in rural or remote areas may be the sole provider of emergency services in a community. Often termed "first responders", EMRs may be responsible for initial assessments, the provision of safe and appropriate care, and arranging or providing the safe transport of a patient to the proper health-care facility.
SAIT's EMR training includes emergency medical services, ambulance operations, patient assessment, basic life support, trauma and medical emergencies, geriatrics, environmental, psychological, and special situations.
This program combines online-managed self-study of theoretical concepts with mandatory classroom lab days where you'll be assessed and taught practical skills. Students must be motivated and organized to learn the required material through self-directed study and skill practice.
