This publication is a revision of the "Emergency Medical Services: First Responder Training Course" based upon the 1994 "EMT-Basic: National Standard Curriculum" and the "National EMS Education and Practice Blueprint". Its goal is to provide students with the core knowledge, skills and attitudes to function in the capacity of a first responder. The "First Responder: National Standard Curriculum" was designed and developed by a Curriculum Development Group of emergency medicine and education experts. It was subjected to two pilot tests, one in Raleigh, North Carolina (representing urban/metropolitan First Responders), and the other in New Prague, Minnesota (representing rural First Responders). It consists of an Instructor's Course Guide, designed and developed to assist the course coordinator, instructors, and others in planning, managing and teaching the "First Responder: National Standard Curriculum", and Instructor's Lesson Plans, composed of seven modules of instruction. There are 26 lessons within the seven modules.
