RATIONALE AND SCOPE OF COURSE
The Professional Medical Associates' Emergency Medical Technician Program has been specifically designed to address the needs of EMRs looking to upgrade. Those completing this program would be eligible for registration as Emergency Medical Technicians with the Alberta College of Paramedics. The course is based as a completer program, so many of the components previously addressed in our EMR course will be briefly reviewed to ensure retention without constant repetition. The course also includes the information required to cover the latest scope of practice for EMT personnel. This includes material presently in Section 12(1) of the Health Disciplines Act, as well as the new Alberta Competency Profile from the Alberta College of Paramedics and the National Occupational Competency Profile of the Paramedic Association of Canada at the Primary Care Paramedic (PCP) level.

Those enrolling in the program must have completed the Emergency Medical Responder program and must be registered EMR practitioners, or eligible for registration within 90 days of program commencement. The focus of the completion program is on the assessment of the patient - strategies to assess particular portions of the body rather than rote memorization of phrases and the ability to assimilate information. This has long been communicated to us by field practitioners as a weakness of EMT programs. Competency for entrants is assessed by completion of a practical scenario at the EMR level, and the successful completion of the selection examination.
