Emergency Medical Responder-EMR/First Responder Refresher Course




The Emergency Medical Responder/EMR Refresher is a vital part of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system. The EMR is trained to get there first-the point when a difference can be made between life and death.

The re-training you are about to undergo is focused on the knowledge and skills to save a life, to comfort a patient at the height of the crisis, and to provide care that flows seamlessly into the care given by emergency personnel on the ambulance.

The EMR Refresher course is 16 hours of classroom instruction to include: Lecture, NREMT requirements for the EMR, Skills review for the 5 practical skill stations.

*If you are current in your EMR certification you are not required to take the practical skills exam but practice in class.
