National Registry Review and Prep Course
National Registry Prep & Review is one of our most requested classes. Developed by K. Lee Darnell, NRP; former EMS Director of Iredell County EMS, the Prep course also serves as a refresher for those who are currently Nationally Registered, and can be used to meet NC OEMS Continuing Education requirements. The course is facilitated by a group of NR Paramedics with extensive educational backgrounds. The course runs seventy-two hours and is followed by the National Registry Psychomotor Exam. The course covers topics that are commonly seen on the NR written exam.
Pedi-Trio (Pedi-ITLS/PEPP/PALS) This class combines the three best Pediatric courses in existence into one 20 hours comprehensive class. This class will cover ALL the objectives of PALS, PEPP and Pedi-ITLS. This course is a PreMed Exclusive!
Premed’s Critical Care – Paramedic course, based upon the original University of Iowa curriculum, is intended for experienced Paramedics & RN’s who frequently encounter critically ill patients, or who wish to enhance their knowledge of critical care transport. ALS providers earn a certificate of completion and CEUs.
The CC-P course is the ORIGINAL Critical Care program, developed & sponsored by the University of Iowa Health Care System EMS Learning Resources Center in 1996. This intensive course provides participants the foundation of managing Critical Care Transports for experienced and practicing Paramedics.
The curriculum has been reviewed and validated and qualifies successful participants to sit for the CCT-P Exam. Participants may also use the course to prepare for national board exams such as the FP-C. PreMed is recognized as an IBSC continuing education provider for those holding critical care certifications.
Flight Paramedic Review
PreMed’s Flight Paramedic Review Course prepares students to sit for the Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C) exam administered by International Board of Specialty Certification. The course is also approved as a continuing education course for those already certified.
Though targeted toward paramedics seeking to advance their career, the course can also be utilized by nurses preparing to sit for the Certified Flight Nurse (CFRN) exam. Documentation of attendance will be provided to attendees to allow them to seek continuing education hours on their own.
PreMed’s moulage course is instructed by a Hollywood trained special effects artist with over 20 years of experience creating realistic “injuries” for disaster drills, National Registry Exams, the NC & SC State & Regional Paramedic competitions, and ITLS classes in the Carolina’s & Virginia. This course allows participants to build realistic wounds and injuries in class. With the purchase of OPTIONAL Moulage cases, participants take that knowledge and skill to their agencies to enhance in-house training, to assist with “Prom Promise” type events, and other community & school activities.
Upon successful of this “basic” class participants will be able to create abrasions, lacerations, bruising, ecchymosis, incisions, Battle’s sign, Raccoon eyes and other common injuries that your EMT’s and paramedics will see in their careers.
Class is also suitable for college drama programs and community theater.
