What is the Emergency Medical Response Course?
ASHI **Emergency Medical Response** is designed to provide non-EMS responders including government, corporate, law enforcement, and corrections personnel with a level of training comparable to Emergency Medical Responder. This 48-hour course is consistent with national EMS curriculum requirements and educations standards, however, it is not the intent of the ASHI **Emergency Medical Response** program to cross the EMS scope of practice threshold.
