The purpose of this course is to provide credentialed EMS providers with the instructional knowledge, resources, and skills to effectively deliver quality EMS education. The course focuses on instructional preparation, presentation, and evaluation, and presents a range of educational topics, including the psychology of learning, classroom management, educational issues in EMS education, lesson plan development, student and instructor evaluation, cultural awareness, and available resources.
This 40+ hour course is delivered in a hybrid learning environment and is an excellent opportunity for new and experienced instructors to develop and hone their instructional delivery skills.
Students will participate in independent learning of weekly online assignments and exams, then attend a virtual, instructor-led group session to bring it all together with topics review and discussion, followed by student presentations.
At the conclusion of the course, students will participate in an in-person practical skills assessment with a local or regional evaluator.
This course is delivered in partnership with the Washington State Department of Health and is approved to meet the Senior EMS Instructor (SEI) prerequisite requirement as an approved instructor training course. More details about becoming an SEI can be found on the Department of Health Website.
