Training and Preparation in Emergency Scenarios
SOLO Southeast at NOC offers the highest quality Wilderness EMT and continuing education courses for emergency management services. Our highly experienced instructors, along with our hands-on learning approach, allows our students to gain necessary emergency management skills through experiential learning, rather than hours spent in a classroom. We'll teach you how to problem solve in the worst situations and give you the confidence to make the best decisions.
SOLO offers both Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Courses and Wilderness EMT Courses. The EMT course is an intensive 3 week program that meets the DOT standards and is approved at the state and NREMT level. By adding the 1 week Wilderness Module for Healthcare Professionals to the end of the EMT, students learn how to apply their newly acquired skills to remote wilderness settings and learn additional wilderness only protocols for backcountry situations.
This exciting 5-Day course for healthcare professionals elevates your skills to the WEMT level for EMS professionals, and to the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) level for all other Healthcare Professionals. In this course, participants are focusing on emergency care protocols when they are separated from definitive care by distance, time, terrain, or for special circumstances like natural disasters. Gain the skills and confidence you need to operate where definitive care is inaccessible.
Are you a Healthcare Professional with a current WEMT or WFR? Want to acquire advanced skills, learn the latest protocols, and delve into advanced topics in lieu of taking a standard 2-3-Day recertification course? The 5-Day course will focus on advanced backcountry skills and updating you on protocol changes since your last wilderness certification. We rotate through a number of topic from year to year so participants can constantly expand their knowledge.
Designed for EMTs and Wilderness EMTs who need to certify their National Registry EMT and/or their WEMT. This 3-Day course also counts as continuing education to re-certify National Registry and provides continuing education hours towards NC and other State EMS certifications.
