1-One Long Day “Hands-on” Session
“National Registry EMT Psychomotor Exam”
Once the student has completed the online course and final exam, the next training step is the live skill learning/testing session. Our regularly scheduled skills lab (aka. “EMT Exit Sessions“) consists of a single long day (2 days for larger groups) live lab event: Practice Lab; Testing Lab.
If regularly scheduled training labs do not fit your personal schedule, then private sessions averaging 8 hours can be purchased and scheduled around your availability.
The session begins with familiarization of materials and equipment and then quickly moves into the “hands-on” skills training with fellow students. Furthermore, the dates for these sessions are posted on the PERCOMOnline Events Calendar 10-12 months in advance.
