HLED 2015 Wilderness EMT

This comprehensive course integrates the urban Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)-Basic curriculum with a wilderness medicine curriculum delivered through classroom education, practical skills, scenarios and full-scale outdoor mock rescues. Successful completion of the course and both written and practical examinations will certify the student as a National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) Basic EMT. Students also receive a Wilderness EMT certification from the course provider. Both certifications are current for two years. Students must have a current healthcare provider level CPR certification (most commonly called CPR for the Professional Rescuer or BLS Healthcare Provider CPR) and a TB test completed within 1 year prior to the last day of the course. For clinical rotations, students may also be required to pass a criminal background check, a 9-panel drug screen or other location specific requirements. (6 lect., 6 lab)
