The Emergency Medical First Responder (EMR) course has been designed to provide the knowledge and skills to stabilise a patient until an ambulance or other pre-hospital care provider arrives. The knowledge and skills taught as part of the EMR course are designed for the First Person On Scene to intervene within a scope of practice to utilise life saving interventions to preserve life and prevent deterioration of the patient.
Ideal for Firemen, Police, Security Professionals (Armed Response/ CPOs), Life Guards, Teachers, Education professionals, Military, First aid trainers, Stewards, Voluntary sector and Cabin crew.
The EMR course is a must have for Fire Fighters, comprehensively replacing the BAA course that we provided in the past. The course includes additional modules and certifications, awarding the learner with an Emergency Medical First Responder (EMR) certificate, including additional modules such as Advanced First Aid, Basic Life Support For Healthcare Providers (BLS for HCP) and International Trauma Life Support Basic (ITLS-B) certification.
The First Responder training is an ECSI approved training programme that is offered in association with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American College of Emergency Physicians. Please note this is not an HPCSA course and does not provide the learner with registration at the HPCSA and as such does not entitle you to treat patients routinely, as part of your daily work requirements.
