The Emergency Medical Responder course prepares the EMR student to provide prehospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries. Areas of study include an introduction to emergency medical services systems, roles and responsibilities of EMRs, anatomy and physiology, medical emergencies, trauma, and special considerations for working in the prehospital setting.
Note that the cost of the class does not include BLS CPR Certification (required for class). That class will be held prior to the start of EMR and costs $45. Additional costs include background check and licensing fees paid to the Oregon Health Authority. See the dates and course details in the Syllabus:EMRCourseSyllabusSchedule.pdf
