Why ASHI Emergency Medical Response?
The original purpose of First Responder training— filling the knowledge and skill gap between basic first aid training and EMS for non-EMS providers — is the intent
of ASHI’s Emergency Medical Response program.
The ASHI Emergency Medical Response program is based on the same nationally developed information for training Emergency Medical Responders in EMS. The program uses the same instructional and student materials to provide an effective EMR alternative for non-EMS
From a workplace compliance standpoint, certification in ASHI Emergency Medical Response meets and exceeds
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) medical and first aid training requirements for the workplace.
Emergency Medical Response Course Description
Attentive Safety offers the ASHI Emergency Medical Response training for managing out-of-hospital medical emergencies prior to the arrival of EMS.
The program is designed to provide non-EMS responders more depth and exposure to standard first aid training topics to provide richer and more advanced training. It meets and exceeds workplace first aid training requirements and satisfies the desire to learn more than just basic first aid without the burden associated with EMS provider training and certification.
Emergency Medical Response provides comparable training to that of Emergency Medical Responder, the base-level training for EMS providers, although the program is not intended for training EMS providers or preparing students to be eligible for EMS provider testing and certification.
Emergency Medical Response Course Tests
Successful completion of a written exam and designated performance evaluations are required for initial certification and renewal as an ASHI Emergency Medical Response provider.
To become eligible for certification, students must receive a passing score on the ASHI Emergency Response Written Exam of 100 multiple-choice questions.
