NAEMT to Hold Courses and Exhibit at EMS Today

Jan 06, 2012

If you plan on attending EMS Today, February 28 - March 3 in Baltimore, be sure to register for the one-day NAEMT educational courses being held on Wednesday, February 29, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Each course offers 16 hours of CECBEMS credit and meets NREMT recertification requirements. Courses include:

Prehospital Trauma Life Support Hybrid Course
This PHTLS Hybrid course allows students to obtain PHTLS hands-on skills instruction in one day. By taking the lectures online prior to EMS Today, you will spend one day perfecting your trauma skills and honing your critical thinking ability to treat trauma patients. The online portion of the program consists of the same lecture topics as the original PHTLS course, but allows you to take the course at your own pace, either while on-duty or in the quiet of your own home. The onsite workshop takes the knowledge gained during the online portion of the program and applies it to actual trauma scenarios. This Hybrid course is open to all levels of EMS practitioners.

Emergency Pediatric Care Hybrid Course
The EPC Hybrid course provides students with the opportunity to gain insight into the evaluation and treatment of pediatric patients. From Common Medical Emergencies to Hypoperfusion and Shock to Cardiac Emergencies, EPC offers a look at the best way to treat and manage pediatric patients. With this unique Hybrid course, students take the first eight hours of the course within a two-week period prior to EMS Today, and then attend the one-day hands-on and skills component. This lets students gain 16 hours of this much-needed continuing education while attending class on site for only eight hours.

The early bird price before February 3 is $285, and the price is $310 after that date. Register now here.
