The Provider course is taught by FARMEDIC instructors. This course combines classroom training with hands-on exercises.
The cost of a provider course covers both the course and course materials. Generally we require a minimum of 20 students to hold a course at a given location, and allow a maximum of 45 students. Many departments team up with other departments, make the training county-wide, or make it an interagency training to obtain both the minimum number of students necessary and the maximum benefit for the course.
The course is a 12-hour course, generally divided up over two days. The exact schedule for the course is developed between the sponsoring agency and the instructor.
Students do not need to be paramedics, or even Emergency Medical Technicians, to participate in this course, but they should be members of a fire or EMS organization.
