Atlantic Cape Offers New Emergency Medical Responder Course

The Health Professions Institute at Atlantic Cape Community College is offering a new emergency medical responder course at the college’s Atlantic City Campus this spring.

This course is designed for police, firefighters, schoolteachers or anyone with the potential to the first at the scene of a medical emergency. It will provide immediate basic lifesaving care to critical patients who access the emergency medical services system. EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive.

Students will receive lecture, skills lab and online instruction on the human body systems, patient assessment, airway, medical emergencies, trauma, behavioral emergencies, substance abuse and childbirth information.

Lecture and lab modules will take place at the Health Professions Institute at Atlantic Cape’s Worthington Atlantic City Campus, 1535 Bacharach Blvd., from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., six Saturdays, and 8 a.m.-noon, one Saturday, beginning April 7. The 58.5-hour course costs $695.
