The Remote Emergency Medical Technician (REMT) course meets and exceeds wilderness medical standards by covering all Wilderness EMT (WEMT) curriculum, while also incorporating select higher-level capabilities. This hands-on, intensive training course educates students in a wide range of skills and real-world scenarios. Students receive the EMT certification through the National Registry of EMT’s, and the U.S. Coast Guard’s Medical Care Person in Charge (MCPIC) Certification. 

By combining NREMT education with the MCPIC and Remote EMT curriculum, the REMT enables participants to successfully work as an EMT in a wide variety of environments. The REMT curriculum educates students on high-level medical skills and topics that include advanced wound closure (suturing and stapling), foley catheterization, antibiotic therapy, IV administration, sick call and primary care, pediatrics, geriatrics, and childbirth.

Additionally, the course covers travel medicine, telemedicine, medical kit integration, lifting and moving patients, advanced airway management, oxygen administration, shock, thoracic trauma, head injuries, dental emergencies, musculoskeletal injuries, respiratory and cardiac emergencies, mass-casualty incidents, anaphylaxis, cold and heat emergencies, altitude, immersion, submersion, and more.
