This course was developed to provide Emergency Responders with the necessary tools and information required to operate emergency vehicles. Emergency responders have to be effective at controlling their driving environment in all situations and conditions without compromising the safety of their patient, their partner or other road users. This course is tailored to meet the needs of this specialized group of professional drivers.
While the goal of this course is to provide foundational knowledge and skill attainment, it is strongly recommended Emergency Vehicle Operators maintain recertification and continual self-reflection.
The Emergency Vehicle Operator Course is a training program that can be used in a variety of settings and organizations to meet emergency vehicle operator training needs. The course consists of three training sections:
II. Driving Course Practice Exercises
III. Simulator Training
The goal of the course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to operate their vehicle so that the vehicle, equipment, crew, and patients will be delivered safely and efficiently and the safety of the public will be assured during all phases of the delivery of Emergency Medical Services involving the ambulance.
