Re: EMT-P to RN programs



Hello,

I recently taught in a UMBC CCEMT-P course; I thought that it was lacking in
content and substance.  I taught the air way section, the slide and
knowledge content were really poor.  The CCEMT-P slides were on par with a
basic EMT course.I spent more time doctoring the slides to make it an
advanced lecture, than I did giving the lecture.  Now in defense of the
course I don't know if the remainder of the course was the same, but is not
the air way the most important system.  If they skimped here then you may be
able to draw some conclusions.

Just my hand full of change.

Mike
