Remote Emergency Medical Technician

   If you work or spend time in austere environments where access to medical care is often delayed and communication is unreliable, this six-day course is for you! The REMT and WFR are the industry standard for mountain leaders, professional guides, close protection team leaders, expeditions, and search and rescue team members.

   The REMT course provides medical skills and didactic learning for those looking to work in austere, remote and resource poor environments. 

   Graduates of this programme can register with the Malta Registry of Paramedics as an EMT. More information can be found on the Registry website. http://paramedic.com.mt/malta-registry-of-paramedics/

   Graduates are invited to continue on with their medical training and start the Higher Diploma of Remote Practice Paramedic. https://corom.org/corom-remote-paramedic/

Wilderness First Responder

The REMT curriculum exceeds the requirements for the Wilderness First Responder as well as the Wilderness Upgrade for Medical Professionals. Delegates requiring the WFR or WUMP certification can request either certificate in addition to the Remote EMT. There is a fee for these additional certs. 

International Trauma Life Support

The REMT curriculum includes the ITLS Basic course. This is the military version which follows the same cABC patient assessment taught on the REMT course. 

Online training

The REMT starts with forty hours of online Moodle based content. All lessons must be completed and the patient scenarios submitted to our tutors prior to taking the online final exam. All delegates must pass the final online exam at 80% or higher. 

Classroom training

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.

Clinical training

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.
