Course Description

Emergency Response Fundamentals focuses on entry-level training required for working in the field of emergency prehospital care. This course covers emergency medical services, patient assessment, basic life support, therapies, trauma and medical emergencies, emergency childbirth, geriatrics, environmental emergencies, special situations and professionalism.

The course combines online-managed self-study of theoretical concepts with mandatory classroom lab days which include lecture and practical components. You’ll be required to complete pre-course work online leading up to the first in-person lab.

EMRG-001 is the first course to complete for the EMR certificate; it is a mandatory prerequisite for EMRG-003 Advanced Emergency Response and EMRG-102 ITLS Basic Provider. It is also a prerequisite to participate in the 16-hour Ride Along which you must complete no later than the end date of the third/last course you take toward EMR Certificate program.

Note: Registration for this course closes seven days prior to the course start date.

Upon successful completion of this course, you'll be able to:

  • use appropriate medical terminology to describe the anatomy and physiology of the human body
  • explain the anatomy and physiology of the following body systems: nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, integumentary system, gastrointestinal and genitourinary and endocrine
  • discuss common body responses to diseases and their impact on patients

  • utilize communication techniques to establish effective relationships with colleagues, patients and the general public
  • apply the principles of a safe work environment when working as a medical first responder
  • describe the interventions expected of a medical first responder in a multiple casualty incident (MCI)
  • compare the equipment, vehicles and vehicle operation associated with the transportation of patients in Alberta
  • develop a strategy to maintain good mental and physical health as a prehospital care practitioner.

For an optimal learning and job-ready experience, you’ll need to bring your motivation and organizational skills, be punctual and attend & participate in all classes.
