The Emergency Medical Technician course (PDP ER 400) is designed to prepare an individual to take the state written and practical EMT exam that is offered at Boston University by the Office of Emergency Medical Services or by the National Registry of EMTs.
Topics of discussion for the course include, but are not limited to: the History of the EMS System, Medical-Legal Aspects of Emergency Medicine, Anatomy and Physiology, Patient Assessment, CPR and Defibrillation, Medical based Emergencies, Trauma based Emergencies, Bioterrorism, and Ambulance Operations.
Additional components of the class include 8 hours of required ambulance observation ride-a-longs, 4 hours of required observation time in the emergency room of local trauma hospitals, and 25 sets of vital signs that are taken outside of class time.
EMTs are usually employed by ambulance companies. Jobs are readily available in the Boston area and some companies come into our class to recruit employees.
