Course Design and Descriptions

Tests may be taken as a pre-test or post-test as many times as you want as this is a key to mastery learning techniques. Anytime after you pass the test, you are eligible for CE credit. Register and pay the nominal fee per unit. You will immediately receive your certificate that verifies your completion of the course. You now have earned state and nationally accepted continuing education credits. Email your certificate for electronic filing or print it out for your EMS agency. We also keep your files archived for your immediate retrieval on our secure server wherever you are in the world.

Case Studies, Scenarios, and Simulations

Application of knowledge is the focus of learning to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate. In other words, comprehension does not necessarily transfer into practical application on the job. Therefore, we designed EMSNeeds.com courses to be more efficient and effective by using case studies, scenarios, simulations for deeper, long-term memory and on-the-job problem-solving.

In addition, mastery learning is integrated by means of "Do a little;test a lot." Take a test repeatedly until you pass. Failure is part of the process of learning. We learn from our mistakes. As a result of these authentic resources, certificates verifying continuing education (CE) units become more valid and reliable tools to verify training and to protect the public.

Objectives

Objectives for each course are categorized into these specific skills where applicable:

  1. Cognitive (knowledge and comprehension);
  2. Affective (feelings and senses), and
  3. Psychomotor (doing and applying with critical evaluation skills)).

At the completion of each continuing education course, you should be able to know and do the following where applicable:

  • Assess a patient by describing the condition.
  • Identify signs and symptoms.
  • Choose tools and techniques.
  • Clarify treatment and clarify options.
  • Participate in a case study, scenario, or simulation that reinforces interactive learning to evaluate a specific emergency situation.
  • Review and respond appropriately to ensure the protection of the public.

Professional competence includes six subcategories:

  • Conceptual competence - Understanding the theoretical foundations of the profession.
  • Technical competence - Ability to perform tasks required of the profession
  • Interpersonal competence - Ability to use written and oral communications effectively.
  • Contextual competence - Understanding the societal context (environment) in which the profession is practiced.
  • Integrative competence - Ability to meld theory and technical skills in actual practice.
  • Adaptive competence - Ability to anticipate and accommodate changes (e.g., technological changes) important to the profession.
