Emergency Medical Responder

Health Care Career Training

The Health Professions Institute of Atlantic Cape Community College is proud to offer our Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course. This program is designed for police, firefighters, school teachers or anyone with the potential to be the first at the scene of a medical emergency. Emergency Medical Responders provide immediate basic lifesaving care to critical patients who access the emergency medical services system. EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport. Emergency Medical Responders are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, Emergency Medical Responders perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.

Students will receive lecture, skills lab and online instruction on human body systems, patient assessment, airway, medical emergencies, trauma, behavioral emergencies, substance abuse and childbirth.
