- Basic Life Support (CPR) – initial and recertification
Short for cardiopulmonary resuscitation, CPR is an emergency procedure during which the heart and lungs are made to work by manually compressing the chest overlying the heart and forcing air into the lungs. CPR is used to maintain circulation when the heart stops pumping, usually because of disease, drugs or trauma.
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) – initial and recertification
The ACLS class provides definitive emergency medical care that includes defibrillation, airway management and use of drugs and medications. This course is usually begun by emergency medical technicians who do intubation and defibrillation at the direction of a doctor or nurse, and continues through various modalities until the patient arrives at the trauma center.
- Advanced Pediatric Life Support (PALS) – initial and recertification
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that uses a series of simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support Experienced Provider (ACLS-EP)The ACLS-EP course is designed to challenge students. An interactive format is used requiring a basic current understanding of ACLS algorithms and practice skills. Course emphasis is an advanced level.
- Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) – initial and recertification
PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program. PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a pre-hospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities.
- Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) – initial and recertification
Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) is the first EMS education program that fully addresses how to best assess and manage the most common medical crises in patients, offering a "think outside the box" methodology. It is for all levels of practitioners with a strong commitment to patient care, including emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse anesthetists and physicians.
- Pediatric Education for Pre-Hospital Providers (PEPP) – initial and recertification
PEPP gives a complete source of pre-hospital medical information for the emergency care of infants and children. Developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the PEPP course offers an exciting curriculum designed specifically to teach pre-hospital professionals how to better assess and manage ill or injured children.
- Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) – initial and recertification
This certificate delivers the new National EMS Educational Standards adopted by the state of Minnesota for emergency medical technician education requirements. This certificate will prepare the entry-level emergency medical technician for direct employment in an emergency ambulance service, basic transport service, an emergency room, police department, security department or fire department. Completion of the EMT course prepares the student for the National Registry of EMT examination. Successful completion of the national registry exam is recognized by the state of Minnesota to generate the state certification required to work as an EMT in Minnesota.
- Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) – initial and recertification
- Mobile simulation lab
The simulation course provides the health care practitioner the ability to utilize their skills and abilities with a simulator to enhance competency and team collaboration. The simulation course is designed for physicians, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, paramedics, EMT, respiratory therapist and other health care providers.
