While we coordinate with our hosts, on a rare occasion  a situation may arise  where a course needs to be cancelled or postponed due to administrative, contract or registration issues. We make every attempt to decide 14 days prior to the first day. We recommend purchasing refundable tickets and hotel rooms or the purchase of travel insurance should a cancellation or postponement occur.  Students are welcome to transfer between courses if a conflict arises.

Cogent Steps, LLC, is an NATABOC provider offering both a full Emergency Medical Response Course as well as a one-day recertification option to meet student needs. 


REMEMBER:  Per ABPTS and the Sports Specialty Council, you must keep your EMR current during the 10 years of certification.  Throughout the Maintenance of Certification cycle you will need to show proof of EMR.

EMR is good for 2 years, but the MOSC cycle is 3 years. IF your EMR certification lapses for more than 60 days, you will need to take the full 3 day course versus the 1-day recertification.  


EMR (EMERGENCY MEDICAL RESPONSE) COURSES

Tailored to the professional rescuer, the Emergency Medical Response course by the American Red Cross provides comprehensive training that gives the participant the knowledge and skills needed to perform lifesaving interventions on critical patients. The course provides the necessary tools for the rescuer to help sustain life reduce pain and minimize injury during out-of-hospital medical and traumatic emergencies—while awaiting or alongside higher-level personnel at the scene. The curriculum meets and exceeds the requirements set by the National EMS Education Scope of Practice for an Emergency Medical Responder, however it is not an approved educational provider for firefighters and EMT professionals who need to complete training and testing for the national registry exam. 

Core skills include: assessments, CPR, AED, airway and ventilation, medical and trauma emergencies, EMS operations, pharmacological intervention

Additional enrichment modules include: training in asthma, anaphylaxis, epinephrine auto-injectors, C-collar and spine boarding, and more.

The Sports Physical Therapy Section, APTA has adopted this course to meet the needs of the physical therapist providing sideline and venue coverage for athletic events, as well as PT’s in the clinic who are evaluating and treating athletes. The course and its instructors focus on problem solving and answering those difficult questions in the moment of sports coverage. This course is a valuable addition to those PT’s who work in direct access states.  Additionally, the course fulfills the requirements for a physical therapist to be eligible to submit their application for the ABPTS – SCS examination.

Successful completion of both written and practical examinations is required for this course. Final practical examination will include successful completion of the following: bleeding control and shock management, trauma victim assessment and management, airway insertion and suction, management of injuries to soft tissue and skeletal structures and management of head, neck and back injuries.

To facilitate effective learning, the instructor to student ratio is one instructor for fifteen students.

Following successful completion of the course, the participant will be awarded an American Red Cross Emergency Medical Response certificate and the American Red Cross CPR for the Professional Rescuer certificate, both valid for two years. In addition after successful completion physical therapists and athletic trainers are awarded Continuing Education Credits based on the length of course completed.
