Remote EMT Online

Our Remote EMT programme is offered in two separate parts: Part 1 is the 60-hour online course that must be completed before you arrive for Part 2 of the programme. Part 2 is the six-day hands on scenarios, practical skills training and final practical testing. You must successfully complete our online Remote EMT exams prior to attending the practical session.

The online course allows you to learn and review the curriculum at your own pace, and focus on the hands-on element during your six days on practical part of the course. You'll need to complete all online components, including a written exam before you will be allowed into the classroom training.

There are three parts to this Remote EMT qualification:

Part 1: Online training

(60 hours)

The REMT programme starts with sixty hours of online eLearning based content. All lessons must be completed, all 40 online exams taken and the patient scenarios submitted to our tutors before you can be issued with a completion certificate.

Part 2: Classroom training

(50 hours)

Once you have completed and passed the online training, you come to Malta for six days of extensive classroom experience. Most of the week is hands on with some lectures that will review the important topics learned during the online training.

Part 3: Clinical training

(24 hours)

In order to earn your Remote EMT qualification, you must have 24 hours of hands on clinical experience. We can offer that in Malta following your class. Or you can choose to arrange something closer to home as long as you have prior approval from the Faculty.
