Health Science Resources

Attention Health Science Teachers!! (Updated 10/15/2018)


The BREMSS Training Center staff has recently been made aware of the changes concerning reimbursement for the AHA BLS Instructor Course that has been utilized to meet the ALSDE CRI requirements. We want to ensure that we are adjusting our course policies and processes to best meet the needs of the students you serve without sacrificing the integrity of our courses. We are currently evaluating several options and I am seeking your input in the process.

The current program has involved an all-inclusive package price for the students taking the course. However it is our understanding that the state will only reimburse the schools for the exam portion. I am making attempts to contact the appropriate individuals at the department of education to ensure they understand the requirements set forth by the AHA involving instructor education and to also clarify requirements for those of you implementing the Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course into you curriculums.

One potential resolution to the changes involves the incorporation of training center faculty with the training center. In order to participate in this program the instructor must be a current BREMSS AHA BLS Instructor. We would prepare you to teach the BLS Instructor Course and this method would allow you to schedule your course at the times convenient to you and your students and implement a more thorough monitoring process.

I am currently working out the details of the course including cost and the other administrative requirements. If you are interested in this opportunity please go to the following link and completely fill out the information requested.

I would like to schedule a brief online meeting with those interested in the near future to further clarify the process and requirements. Thank you for all you do for your students and schools and please do not hesitate to contact our office if you need any further assistance or information.

Respectfully,

Brian

Emergency Medical Responder
 
Emergency Medical Responders provide immediate lifesaving care to critical patients who access the emergency medical services system. EMRs have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting additional EMS resources to arrive. EMRs also provide assistance to higher-level personnel at the scene of emergencies and during transport. Emergency Medical Responders are a vital part of the comprehensive EMS response. Under medical oversight, Emergency Medical Responders perform basic interventions with minimal equipment.
