This course is for English speakers and will take place from October 25 to March 21 2020, from 18:00 to 23:00 at the United Hatzalah Headquarters, 78 Yirmiyahu Street, Jerusalem.

Our hybrid online course will prepare you to take the National Registry of EMTs written examination.

Upon completion the students will take the psychomotor examination administered by United Hatzalah . The United Hatzalah psychomotor exam meets the standards required by the NREMT. The NREMT written exam will be offered at the Pearson Vue testing center in Ramat Gan, Israel.

Students will be using Jones & Bartlett Learning Management System (LMS). Instruction for our Hybrid EMT course is delivered through media (PowerPoints, videos, links, and audio technology) via the Internet. Our course has a weekly online discussion board and live chat feature for enhanced interaction between the instructors and students. Included in the LMS is the E-book Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured 11th Edition.
