Dunlap and Associates, Inc., Darien, CT.
To assist the States in implementing Federal standards for emergency medical services (under the Highway Safety Act of 1966), this guide has been prepared to aid in organizing, conducting, and standardizing a basic training course for emergency medical technicians (EMT's). Part I is a guide for a course designed to develop or upgrade the skill levels of all individuals involved in providing emergency medical care services. It contains a detailed outline of the course; prerequisites for both students and instructors; suggested scheduling and class size; requirement for facilities, training aids, and materials; and guidelines for conducting the course and for testing and grading students. The introduction indicates that the course emphasizes the development of student skill in recognition of symptoms of illnesses and injuries and proper procedures of emergency care, with reliance placed heavily on demonstration and practice as a teaching method. Each of the 25 lessons is designed to allow practice of specific skills covered in the lesson, and practice, test, and evaluation sessions are designed to assure attainment of proficiency levels in all skills. These lessons are intended to involve 71 hours of classroom training plus 10 hours of in-hospital observation and training for a total of 81 hours. Part II is a guide to aid State officials in organizing and presenting an orientation program for coordinators of the basic training course. (HD)
