Format & duration

Many training providers offer a five day EMT course. Here at Medic 1 we do not believe that this allows the student sufficient time to gain both the theoretical and practical skills. The Medic 1 course is designed in such a way that students can gain knowledge and understanding of how the body systems work prior to attending the classroom sessions. This is referred to as distance learning and usually takes around five weeks, this is then followed by five days of intensive classroom and practical training. During the 5 day classroom based training students will take part in scenarios in and out of the classroom; thus ensuring that the theory learnt can be put into practice.

Syllabus The course is both theoretical and practical and includes:
repiratoryThe Respiratory System
cardiovascularThe Cardiovascular System
digestiveThe Digestive System
nervousThe Nervous System
skeletalThe Musculoskeletal System

As well as continuous assessment, students must pass a multi choice paper and final assessed scenario in order to pass the course.


Following successful completion of the course you will be awarded with a two year Emergency Medical Technician certificate. You will receive an A4 paper card certificate as well as a wallet sized plastic card certificate.


During the course Medic 1 will provide light refreshments. If you are travelling away from home to attend our courses we can book accommodation on your behalf. This would incur additional costs and can be arranged within a range of budgets
