Welcome to First Response's EMT-Hybrid program (Orlando, Florida)
This course is a self-paced EMT course broken into three parts Didactic, Psychomotor Skills, and Clinical. Students must maintain an 80% to prevent being put on academic probation as well as fulfill the weekly participation requirements. These requirements are set to help with retention of information and to ensure success at the NREMT & State level of testing. Students that are successful at First Response are self-motivated and problem solvers, which happens to be natural instinct for EMS professionals. Instructors and Doctors are incorporated into a student’s training to guide mentor and mold students while they attend as well as teach anything taught in a classroom or from a lecture is performed online in the way of PowerPoint presentations, video lectures, homework assignments and research exams.
In addition, there are weekly instructor/student chat rooms covering scenario training, documentation and legally scenarios. In the chat rooms, the students can question the instructor on course material. All students are required to attend 2 chat rooms before completing the course but are encouraged to attend as many as they wish. At the conclusion of the course, the student will be scheduled to attend our facility for skills week. During this week the student will perform all skills associated with the EMT course. At the end of skills week the student will take a final written and a final practical. All students are required to complete 100 hours of clinical rotation.
This course offers you a convenient schedule, the ability to learn from home, and access to faculty during on-line office hours. This course is ideal for the technological savvy and strongly self-motivated student.
If you prefer in-person, classroom-based instruction, please see our traditional Emergency Medical Technician program, which is offered on weekday, weeknight, and weekend schedules.
