 The Training Academy is transitioning from the MFRI EMT Course to an Academy sponsored Blended of Flipped Classroom EMT Course.  This change will improve our training program in several ways. The first of which is that the academy will no longer be curtailed by the rules and policies of MFRI. The current MFRI EMT course requires attendance in all 55 class sessions as well as to utilize and complete all chapters and materials from the on-line content (My Brady Lab).  The MFRI course is divided into 3 sections with only written examinations at each section conclusion without any Practical Skills testing. MFRI has been piloting a new EMT Course in the state which increases the required current in-class hours from 165 (54 sessions) to @220 hours (77 sessions).

The Academy Blended/Hybrid EMT Course will consist of approximately 27-28 in-class (required) sessions.  Some of the class sessions are 6 hours and some as few as 4 hours. The schedule is developed in such a way to have the 4/6hour sessions only on weekend days. But, the in-class sessions will not be the traditional lecture sessions. Instead they will consist of practical skill development, in-class assignments and enhancement of the on-line course materials.  The academy course will switch to the Jones and Bartlett AAOS Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured on-line course materials.  Each student will have access to the on-line Course materials and the course eBook.  Students will have mandatory pre-class assignments which could include, reading assignments, projects to upload to the instructor, prep work for in-class projects as well as quizzes both graded and non-graded. Additional reading and other optional assignments for individual enhancements are also available for each student. The student will be responsible to meet the pre-session requirements to be able to attend the in-class session.  Class make-ups for this course will be extremely limited and should not be counted on.  Due to the extensive amount of in-class activities which will require a maximum ratio of 8:1 student: instructor ratio the class size will be limited to 25 students per class.  We will continue with the same scheduling model as in the past although class will not meet in-person as frequently:

   Monday/Wednesday Nights and Saturday Days
        Tuesday/Thursday Nights and Sunday Days

Successful course completion will meet the National Registry Requirement to sit for the NREMT Computer Adaptive Test (CAT).  The MIEMSS State required EMT Internship remains unchanged for eligibility to the State Practical Test administered by MIEMSS.
