Course Summary and Review


Each unit is comprised of materials that are contained within the National EMS Education and Paramedic Instructional Guidelines.  It is presented with the expressed purpose of bridging the knowledge gaps between the New York State Emergency Medical Technician-Critical Care curriculum and the National EMS Paramedic Education Standards.  It should be clearly understood that each unit is not a comprehensive presentation of all paramedic-level material on a specific topic.  Students are responsible for knowing and reviewing all topic materials up to and including the current Emergency Medical Technician-Critical Care (EMT-CC) curriculum.

 

Students shall be guided through each unit, completing learning modules with activities, and having their knowledge evaluated with formative and summative assessments.  Once students have completed all activities and assessments for a specific unit, they must complete a comprehensive summative assessment of the unit topic material through an external examination platform (FISDAP).  The assessments, as part of the online course, are intended to only evaluate the student’s knowledge of the bridge (gap) material.  The external summative assessment is intended to evaluate the student’s base knowledge within the context of the entire National EMS Education Guidelines.

 

Evaluation/assessments include the following:

 

Learning Module Quizzes and Case Studies

Topic Area Quizzes

Succesful completion of all web-based course objectives

FISDAP Unit Examinations

FISDAP Course Final Examination
