This Course Guide has been prepared to aid the training administrator in planning and managing the training program entitled, "Emergency Medical Services: First Responder Training Course". The overall objective of the course is to improve the quality of emergency medical care rendered to victims of accidents and illness. As the first person at the emergency scene, it is critical that the first responder be proficient not only in providing basic emergency medical care but also in taking any actions necessary to minimize the patient's discomfort and prevent further complications. The course consists of 28 lessons (including one optional lesson) involving a minimum of 40 hours of classroom and field training. The Course Guide consists of four sections: Introduction; The Instructional Program; Course Planning Considerations; and Course Management and Evaluation.
