EMTs require constant training and continuing education.
While online training can assist in an EMT's training, receiving hands-on training is also important.
Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment an employer's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training that is supplied by their own company. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.
The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
