Emergency Medical Technician - PARAMEDIC (EMT-P)

 

Course Description

The Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic is an intensive course which is accelerated over the period of 6 months.  Building on an existing Emergency Medical Technician Advanced (or equivalent) qualification, this course presents participants with the opportunity to further extend their skills and knowledge to competently deliver an enhanced level of emergency and urgent care. 

There is a distance learning element of the course in which an on-line programme is completed.  On completion of the online lectures, the students will have to attend an intensive 3 week practical programme of contact learning time which is at one of our training centers in the UK.  During the practical programme, the student will complete ACLS, ATT, PEPPs, GEMS and ATT.  On successful completion of the assessments then the student will be able to complete the month of field internship.  This can be done at our European partner in Croatia or at one of our UK partners.

The course is designed to allow the learner the flexibility of distance learning - combined with a three week intensive practical programme and then the internship at a time which suits.

The course is essentially in three main parts as follows:

 

  • E-learning over a period of up to 6 months in which an on-line programme of lectures is completed.  

  • On completion of the on-line lectures, the students attend a 3 week practical programme of contact learning time and assessment which is at our training centre in Glasgow, UK. During the practical programme, the student will also complete ACLS, PEPPs, GEMS and ATT. 

  • On successful completion of the practical programme and assessments, the student will be able to complete the 3 weeks of field internship. This can be done with our European partner in Bosnia at a time which suits the student. The internship takes place at a hospital in Mostar in Bosnia, where we have in place a strategic alliance for the benefit of our students. Here at this location, the students are allowed to experience extensive hands on practical skills under the supervision of the highly trained hospital / ambulance staff. This is extremely beneficial to the students to be able to experience first hand, the range of practical applications provided by the Mostar work experience placement.​  The internship at the University Hospital of Mostar will allow you access to areas of emergency care which would not be permitted in the UK or US. You will also be able to exercise the skills learned on the course.
