Intended to aid the course coordinator in planning and managing a basic training program for emergency medical technicians (EMTs), this course guide is divided into four sections. The introductory section provides a brief overview of the coordinator's responsibilities and identifies the twenty-five lessons included in the course. Section 2 describes the instructional program, including the following elements: work performance addressed by the course, student qualifications, student performance objectives, and course structure and instructional strategy. This section also includes a brief description of each unit. The third section covers the course planning considerations, including suggestions for scheduling the lessons, class size, instructor qualifications, required materials and equipment, and cost estimates. The final section includes suggestions for managing and evaluating the course. (Two separate documents accompany the course guide: a set of instructor lesson plans and a student study guide.) (BM)
