1: The first is the theory component which consists of studying text book material. This should be read and completed prior to the classroom sessions if possible. Although students can do well with little pre-reading time, it obviously helps students do better to be as well prepared as possible.
2: The classroom component can be done by all scheduled training days.

Successful completion of the EMR course provides the student with an accredited Emergency Medical Responder certificate. Many students go on to write the provincial emergency medical technician exam and start working on the ambulance, or go on to higher levels of Paramedic training, fire fighting, 911 dispatch, law enforcement, etc. The provincial exam needs to be taken within one year of completing the program.
All EMR courses are $1350.00 and include materials, training, and certification.
