NAEMT course content is created by teams of nationally and internationally recognized subject matter experts in EMS, emergency medicine and other medical specialties, as well as from the military, public safety and emergency response. Those experts ensure that the latest evidence is included and referenced in each course.
Simulations, skills stations, videos, case studies and group discussions encourage critical thinking and reinforce material presented during lectures. Using a variety of proven learning methodologies ensures students receive a broad scope of knowledge to help with decision-making in the field.
All NAEMT education courses are approved for continuing education credit by the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). The number of continuing education credits awarded equals the number of course hours. Courses are also recognized for recertification requirements by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
NTOA endorses and supports the incorporation of a well-trained and equipped Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) element into all tactical teams. Tactical Emergency Medical Support is the provision of preventative urgent and emergent medical care during high-risk, extended duration and mission-driven law enforcement special operations.
The ability of TEMS providers to develop medical threat assessments, render immediate medical care in austere environments, and provide logistical support will further the health and safety of law enforcement personnel and reduce the incidences of injury, illness, disability and death associated with training and tactical operations.
