Course:

What to Expect

The EMT class is a very intense but rewarding course. This course requires quite a bit of commitment and study. We have very high expectations of both student preparedness and performance. We are looking for candidates that are ready and willing to give their full attention to their study of EMS. There will be a significant amount of reading and homework throughout this course. You should plan to spend several hours a week studying and perfecting your skills. Though this will have an impact on your daily life, it can be accomplished even if you work and/or have a family, as long as you plan your study time well (i.e. a little bit of quality study per day). This course is designed to move quickly. It is important for students to keep up with the material. Falling behind will make it impossible to successfully pass the class.

Clinical and Internship:

Students will complete both clinical rotations at a hospital and a field internship with an agency. These will be set up through the class. Students may not attempt to set up their own time. Students will have specific objectives to meet at each of the settings. Skills will be documented and preceptors will give evaluations on student performance. Further details will be discussed in class.

Final Thoughts:

The EMT course is a significant investment in your EMS/Fire career and knowledge. We teach this course with the goal of trying to ensure the EMT is properly trained and ready to deliver high quality care to a patient, with confidence, effectiveness, efficiency, and compassion; and to ensure the EMT student understands and possesses the tools to work as an EMT.

The previously outlined information should help you to understand what I expect out of my students, and what you should be able to expect out of the class. Once you commit to this experience, be prepared for hard work, quality study, and (yes) quite a bit of fun learning and experiencing this side of EMS.

 

Hope to see you in class.
