  • Emergency Medical Dispatch, 5th Ed., Version 4, Instructor, Sandwich, MA

    The APCO Institute EMD Program combines telecommunicator skills with medical knowledge. According to ASTM and NHTSA standards the APCO Institute requires that the Emergency Medical Dispatch Course be taught by instructors with medical and telecommunicator backgrounds. All EMD instructor candidates must hold a current CPR certification (AHA, ARC or equivalent) and those who wish to teach the medical portion must have, minimally, current certification as an Advanced EMT under the National Standard Curriculum as set by the Department of Transportation (DOT).Any candidate that does not possess or obtain this level of training will be classified as a restricted dispatch instructor and will not be able to teach the medical portion of the courses. If one individual can fulfill both the telecommunications and medical requirements, that person may teach the entire course alone. If not, the course must be presented by two APCO EMD instructors who meet the proper qualifications. Any agency that does not have an in-house medical instructor can contact APCO for assistance with instructing the medical modules for an additional cost.
