The online EMR course is a 50- 60 hour course offered to give the students the flexibility of taking an EMS class without having to sit in a classroom for 2-3 hrs twice a week. Students will be given a textbook and have access to an online classroom. Sponsors (fire/ambulance services) will be guiding the students through the skills portion. Students will be required to do the assigned reading and assignments which will include quizzes. The sponsors will be the ones administered the Psychomotor exam at the end of the course.  The course is $600.00 including the book. Students who successfully complete course will be eligible for a $200 reimbursement from the ND Department of Health Division of Emergency Medical Systems (must be affiliated with a QRU or ambulance service). They will also be eligible for a one year free membership with the ND EMS Association. Prior to registration each student will be required to have a sponsor to assist with the practical portion.

Must be 16 of years of age to become a state certified EMR. Minimum of 5 students must be registered.
