Course Descriptions

The Basic Emergency Medical Technician course is an in-depth course in basic life support.

Students learn about acute illnesses, medical emergencies, traumatic emergencies, child birth, rescue extrication, ambulance operations, splinting techniques, communication and documentation, medical legal implications, aed/cpr, basic medications and their effects.

This course combines both classroom lectures with slides and videos and well as hands on lab days where actual skills are practiced and performed.

The course involves approximately 120 hours of classroom participation where attendance is mandatory. The course meets or exceeds current National EMS Guidelines and has Massachusetts OEMS approval.

The EMT-Paramedic course is an in-depth course that will expand your knowledge and skills from your EMT-B or EMT-I level. Such as:

  • Medical legal
  • Airway
  • Trauma
  • Cardiology
  • Medications & Administration

Our course also includes

  • ACLS
  • PALS

This course combines classroom lectures with slides and videos (didactic) with skilled lab days where you will perform & practice the same skills you will one day use in the field such as:

  • Intubation
  • IV’s
  • Identifying and managing cardiac rhythms on the monitor

Once your classroom time is complete you will do clinical time at one of our many hospital partnerships where you will:

  • Complete Patient assessments
  • Administer medications
  • Perform intravenous cannulation
  • Practice airway Interventions
  • Witness child births

Finally, you will move on to your field internship working on an actual ambulance at the paramedic level. Here you can and will do anything withing the paramedic scope of practice.

In total you will complete at least 1300 hours of skills and education.

This 20 Hour course is designed to meet and/or exceed National and Massachusetts requirements for EMT Basics. This course replaces the Massachusetts basic refresher from years past.

The National Continued Competency Requirements are determined by the NREMT Board of Directors based upon widespread input from EMS researchers, EMS physician and EMS provider stakeholders. The NCCR comprises 50% of the overall requirements necessary to recertify. Topics in the NCCR are chosen among the following: evidence based medicine, any changes in the National EMS Scope of Practice Model, science related position papers that affect EMS patient care, topics which cover patient care tasks that have low frequency yet high criticality, and articles which improve knowledge to deliver patient care.

The NREMT will provide the educational materials for this component to the EMS community as part of their mission to protect the public.

This replaces the 48 Hour Refresher of previous years

This program is designed to strengthen the Chain of Survival and provide training on 1 and 2 rescuer adult CPR and Automatic External Defibrillators (AED’s). Responders may include workplace first aid providers, security personnel, lifeguards, or professional firefighters. The program establishes guidelines and protocols in the use of AED’s in accordance with AHA 2005 Revised Guidelines.

This class covers adult child and Infant CPR (including two-rescuer scenarios and use of the bag-valve mask); airway obstruction (both conscious and unconscious); automated external defibrillation; special resuscitation situations; and other cardiopulmonary emergencies.

Who should attend: Healthcare providers; physicians, nurses, patient aids, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, respiratory therapists, physical and occupational therapists, dental assistants, dental hygienist, physician’s assistants, and other allied health personnel.

This course is designed to teach CPR/AED and relief of foreign-body airway obstruction (FBAO) to all lay rescuers, particularly those who are expected to respond to emergencies in the workplace. It is specifically designed for lay rescuers who are required to obtain a course completion card – a credential – documenting completion of a CPR course. All rescuers are trained in CPR and relief of FBAO.

At the end of the course the participant will be able to describe the following: the links of the AHA Chain of Survival, the steps of CPR for adult, infant (optional) and child victims, the signs of 4 major emergencies in adults, strategies to prevent sudden infant death syndrome in infants and injuries in children.

At the end of this course the participant will be able to demonstrate the following skills using an adult, or infant and a child manikin (determined by course modules completed) rescue breathing using mouth-to-mouth ventilation and mouth-to-barrier device, 1-rescuer CPR, relief of a FBAO (foreign body airway obstruction) in a responsive victim.

The length of this course runs slightly more than 3 hours for adult victims or for infant and child victims. The combined course for adult, infant, and child victims lasts 5 ½ to 6 ½ hours.

The New Basic First Aid for the Community and Workplace program teaches how to properly apply first aid skills to save lives and reduce recovery time. This improved format has larger images, key section identifiers, PowerPoint slides, and an improved DVD presentation.

Basic: A complete basic 12 lead course that starts with a simplified overview of cardiac conduction system function and goes through normal and abnormal EKG patterns and ACLS applications. No jargon, just plain, clear information to build real clinical skills. You will learn to recognize and understand normal and abnormal EKG strips. You will practice recognition and analysis of EKG strips as you gain understanding of the common EKG rhythms. It can also help you develop skills to make the EKG portion of ACLS certification go a lot smoother.

Advanced: The skills from Basic 12 lead EKG are reviewed to help you develop confidence and speed with many new tracings. Clinical implications are emphasized. New concepts include: blocked PACs, PACs with aberrant conduction, SVT with aberrancy, atrial tachycardia with block, new variations on the classic AV blocks, fusion beats, the Pacemaker Code, and reentry – including WPW.

The measurement of end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2) currently is the optimal method of continuously monitoring the adequacy of ventilation and circulation in adult through infants. It measures expired carbon dioxide using infrared spectroscopy. ETCO2 can be of value in the assessment of ventilation, metabolism, and of a patient’s circulation status. CMTI will teach you the basic fundamentals of how Capnography is applicable in the EMS community. This We will gives you a basic introduction to the technology of capnography & discuss the uses of capnography in the pre-hospital setting.

The ACLS curriculum is consistent with widely accepted guidelines for professional level cardiopulmonary resuscitation. ACLS is intended for Emergency personnel in intensive care or critical care departments and emergency medical providers. ACLS focuses on training and/or education in basic cardiac rhythm analysis (ECG interpretation). Professional-level Basic Life Support (BLS/CPR/AED) required or included in ACLS course.

PALS is intended for emergency personnel in intensive care or critical care departments and emergency medical providers responsible for the well-being of infants and children. The overall goal of the PALS course is to provide healthcare professionals with didactic and psychomotor skills training in the recognition and treatment of conditions that may lead to a cardiopulmonary arrest in an infant or child. PALS incorporates both pre-hospital and hospital management of pediatric emergencies. PALS program materials are based upon the most recent science, treatment recommendations and guidelines. Additionally, PALS has been nationally approved by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS*). CECBEMS is the national accrediting body for Emergency Medical Services continuing education courses and course providers, and employs a peer-review process for accreditation similar to other healthcare professions.

The CABS program stresses the priority to keep you and the children you care for safe. Babysitting is not just “watching” the children, but being responsible for their safety and well being. When you are caring for a child, you are taking care of a parent(s) most prized possession. Everything in their home and your own home can be replaced— everything, that is, except a child. This course is designed for young people providing babysitting and child care services. Although there are no prerequisites, CPR/AED and First Aid certification are strongly recommended.
