    Emergency Medical Responder Course (EMR)

    Students will learn how to do an initial assessment on a patient who is in need of emergency help. This will include measuring their vital signs and communicating with dispatchers, law enforcement and other health care providers. They provide life-saving interventions while awaiting additional EMS response and assist at the scene and during transport.

    We also offer additional skill courses for EMRs.

    Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

    EMT-Basics are the foundation of pre-hospital emergency medical care. For medical emergencies, they provide rapid response, initial evaluation and care and transport to an appropriate medical facility. They also provide transport between facilities for people who are bedridden and/or require continuous monitoring and care. In addition to customized classes, EMT classes are held routinely on both the Lincoln and Beatrice campuses.
