Emergency Medical Responder (EMR)

Emergency Medical Responders provide immediate lifesaving care and interventions to critical patients before additional EMS resources arrive on scene. EMRs play a vital role in the emergency medical services system, performing basic interventions with minimal equipment, under medical oversight. EMRs also assist higher-level personnel at the scene and during transport.

NREMT COVID-19 Exception

For EMRs due to recertify on September 30, 2021: NREMT has made an exception and has removed the limits on Distributed Education. This exception does not apply if your certification has lapsed or if you failed the NREMT exam three times and need a refresher to retest. The EMR courses we offer will have an F3 or F5 option through the last week of September, but will end when there is no longer time to finish it by September 30, 2021. Please contact us with any questions.
