This American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) Emergency Medical Response course is designed to provide non-EMS resp onders including government, corporate, law enforcement, corrections personnel, executive protection professionals and industrial emergency response teams with a level of training comparable to NREMT Emergency Medical Responder. This 48-hour course is consistent with national EMS curriculum requirements and education standards; however, it is not the intent of the ASHI Emergency Medical Response program to cross the EMS scope of practice threshold.
