Description

For courses in EMT Training.

 

Transition Series: Topics for the EMT provides both an overview of new information contained within the Education Standards at the EMT level and a source of continuing education for practicing EMTs. Intended for a new generation of EMTs, the text integrates new “topics” that were not contained in the EMT-B curriculum and existing “topics” at a much greater depth and breadth than what was contained in the typical EMT-Basic education program. Educating and training EMTs using the new Education Standards, this text provides a solid foundation of knowledge to practice pre-hospital care.
