EMT: EMT I (Basic)

Course Information: Emergency Medical Technician trainings are instructor led 50-120 hour courses. There are three levels of Emergency Medical training available. The Emergency Medical Technician-I is equivalent to the National Standard EMT-Basic, as described in the US Department of Transportation (DOT) curriculum, revised in 1994, excluding the use of advanced airway devices. The EMT provides basic life support such as splinting, hemorrhage control, oxygen therapy, suction, CPR and use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs). Clearly, most treatment procedures performed in any EMS System, regardless of level, are basic life support procedures. Mastery of EMT-I level knowledge and techniques must occur before moving to an EMT-II level of certification. Basic skills should be maintained regardless of certification level. Under the direct or indirect authorization of a physician, an EMT-I may assist with the administration of the patient’s own epinephrine autoinjector, nitroglycerin, or hand held bronchodilator inhaler. The use of a manual external defibrillator requires separate certification as a Defibrillator Technician. The EMT-I course is at least 120 hours in length and CPR certification is a prerequisite.

Key Topics Covered: The EMT provides basic life support such as splinting, hemorrhage control, oxygen therapy, suction, CPR and use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs).
