Class Description

The American Red Cross Emergency Medical Response (EMR) course is designed to provide the participant with the knowledge and skills necessary to work as an emergency medical responder (EMR) to help sustain life, reduce pain, and minimize the consequences of injury or sudden illness until more advanced medical personnel take over. The care steps outlined within this manual are consistent with the following: ■ 2015 International Consensus on CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Science with Treatment Recommendations ■ 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC ■ 2015 American Heart Association and American Red Cross Guidelines Update for First Aid This course meets or exceeds National Emergency Medical Services Education Standards Emergency Medical Responder Instructional Guidelines, however, this course does not meet the requirements for licensure as an Emergency Medical Responder and will only result in certification from the American Red Cross upon successful completion. While Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) does not provide state licensure or certification as an Emergency Medical Responder, this course is ideal for high school and college-aged students to receive training similar to the training EMS professionals receive as they look to enter careers in healthcare, public safety, or law enforcement. Program Prerequisites There are no prerequisites for this program.
