ATTR 400 - Emergency Medical Technician Training

(4 credits)
Prerequisite: Restricted to Athletic Training majors or consent of instructor
The primary focus of this course is to prepare the students to successfully pass the Massachusetts EMT Practical Skills Exam and The National Registry of EMT’s written cognitive exam. The successful candidate will be taught how to effectively care for sick, injured and critically ill/injured patients in accordance with the Massachusetts State Treatment Protocols. Additional components of the class include eight hours of required ambulance observation ride-a-longs or eight hours of observation time in the emergency room of a local hospital emergency department. An alternative to an ambulance red-along would be to spend eight hours with the BSU Police Department as they respond to EMS calls for assistance. Offered every semester.
