EMS Instructor/Coordinator is offered to prepare the interested EMS provider to become an effective EMS educator. The candidate will become familiar with theories of learning, application of theories to teaching the adult learner, preparation of educational materials, methods of teaching and evaluation, utilizing technology in and outside of the classroom, textbook and materials selection, presentation of material, State accreditation and administrative issues relating to teaching EMS.
Emergency Medical Services Instruc-tor/Coordinator is taught as a hybrid online/onsite course. Two weeks of reading and online assignments start the course and are followed by three full days of experiential training and discussion with continued online work. Online work must be completed on time- because much of it in interactive, late postings do not allow classmates the benefit of your work. Extensions will only be given for true emergencies after consideration by the instructor.
This course is one of several prerequisites to obtaining certification from the State of Massachusetts OEMS for Instructor/Coordinator certification. The course is currently approved for 24 continuing education hours at all levels from the Office of Emergency Medical Services.
This course does not, by it self, certify the candidate as an instructor coordinator. Attendance is required at all classes for credit and successful completion Additionally, all candidates will have to apply to OEMS PRIOR to beginning their teaching internship.
Upcoming class will be held at our Attleboro Campus.
