EMR to EMT Bridge Program

Get Credit for Your Previous Education as an EMR and Bridge to EMT

ONE TERM FORMAT – Our EMR to EMT Bridge program is for the Emergency Medical Responder who is looking to obtain certification as an Emergency Medical Technician.  The full program will be presented in a twelve (12) week format which will allow for online course completion as well as hands on practical lab sessions.  This presentation provides a more intense learning experience but allows for the student to complete all certificate requirements.  Students only take and complete the portions of the EMT program that are not part of their EMR certification.  Our unique ability to give previous credit for education and certification allows students to complete the program in less time than when taking a full course of instruction.

Students apply for admission at the beginning of a term and will have 12 weeks (or till the end of the term) to complete the full program.

The EMR to Emergency Medical Technician course prepares the EMT student to provide prehospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries as well as advanced airway techniques, and basic medication administration.

Clinical Ride Time Requirements

Our EMR to EMT program requires that each student complete no less than 24 hours of clinical ride time with an ambulance service as well as participate in a clinical tour of an emergency department. The clinical ride time experience gives students the opportunity to observe skills being performed on actual patients in real clinical settings. They also have the opportunity to perform their newly learned skills on patients under the supervision of a clinical preceptor. This is invaluable hands on practice that helps to solidify the learning process.

Students must document patient contacts on patient care reports and have clinical verification forms signed by approved preceptors at each clinical site that they attend. This is a REQUIRED COMPONENT on the program and students can NOT COMPLETE the program without the attending the required clinicals and completing the clinical objectives.

Great Brook Academy will set up the clinical tour of an approved emergency department within a hospital to meet these educational requirements.
