Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) Class

Emergency Medical Responders provide immediate lifesaving care to critical patients who access the emergency medical services system.

EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional Emergency Medical Services (EMS) resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport.

Emergency Medical Responders are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, Emergency Medical Responders perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.

This class covers first aid, CPR, basic trauma and medical care along with pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions for emergencies.

Successful completion of this course make the student eligible to obtain state certification as an EMR and be prepared to pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) examps for the EMR certification, and take the State of Wyoming exam for licensure.

Many small or rural Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and volunteer agencies, such as fire departments, require or recommend this for their staff. While an EMR cannot attend a patient alone in an licensed ambulance, they are able to provide care before EMS arrives and assist EMTs or Paramedics while transporting a patient.

While this EMR course does not provide licensure or certification, it does allow for the student to obtain it EMR certification. The course is ideal for high school or college-aged students looking to enter a career in healthcare, public safety or law enforcement. It also is ideal for professionals in the fire service, law enforcement, as well as mining, oil and gas, and industrial safety professionals.

Must be 16 years old by the end of this course to enroll.
