    EMT-Paramedic course provides a flexible hybrid/blended learning course to suit healthcare professionals (EMTs, CMTs, Offshore Medics etc)

AREMT Paramedic


The Servicios Medicos (SOS) EMT-Paramedic course provides a flexible hybrid/blended learning course to suit healthcare professionals (EMTs, CMTs, Offshore Medics etc) to develop their pre hospital underpinning knowledge, skills, practical experience and qualifications.

The course follows the US DoT EMT-Paramedic syllabus and uses the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) Nancy Caroline/Jones and Bartlett interactive learning materials.


The first phase of the course, is delivered by distance learning, utilizing the latest in online learning technology: experiential learning materials providing ‘virtual ride along’ video case studies for the learner to observe, interact and reflect upon. A sample ‘ride along’ can be viewed at the link below:


The distance learning phase caters for differing learning styles and allows students to progress and reflect at their own pace: reading Nancy Caroline’s Emergency Care in the Streets manual; online text; interactive exercises; reviewing quizzes and end of module assessments.

The package includes:

  • Print textbook
  • Interactive eBook
  • Practice activities at www.paramedic.EMSZone.com 
  • Assessment (TestPrep)
  • Interactive course lectures
  • Virtual ride-alongs

The material will be consolidated through Distance Learning Assignments (DLAs) emailed to students periodically, supported by online tutors

At any stage, students can access the Paramedic Test Prep software and review the National Registry style questions for each module: a great revision tool.

Paramedic 1


Following successful completion of each of the distance modules and DLAs, learners are invited to attend the onsite module, which reviews the modules in a classroom setting, providing discussion, videos, models, skills stations and scenario based learning: culminating in the registry written exams and skills assessments. 

Paramedic 2


Delegates may remain onsite to complete module C immediately or may return at any stage in the future at their convenience. Module C (CPD/CE) includes:

  • PreHospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)
  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)

The assessment phase includes the written exams, practical ACLS/PHTLS skills stations, scenario based assessents, rhythm identification and team mega codes.


  • ASHI Wilderness EMT Upgrade
  • NAEMT Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)
  • NAEMT All Hazards Disaster Response (AHDR)

Learners may wish to remain onsite for two additional days to complete the bolt on Wilderness EMT upgrade qualification. Much of the material is covered during the primary course but this phase explores wilderness medicine in more depth, considering altitude, tropical medicine, improvisation, telemedicine, venomous snakes, spiders and scorpions and antivenom use. We invite along a leading herpetologist with live venomous snakes (vipers and coral snakes) and a remote area doctor to discuss tropical fevers. This phase culminates in an altitude trek, through the forest onto the slopes of a volcano, where the effects of altitude will be experienced first hand during scenario-based exercises.

Paramedic 3


Students who successfully complete the written and skills assessments will be permitted to go forward onto the clinical placements phase.

We offer front line ambulance placements which enable our learners to experience a large number of patient assessments (medical and trauma) and perform a wide range of clinical interventions, necessary to develop competence and confidence (and for registration). The following options are available in order to achieve a rounded profile of experience:

  • Front line emergency ambulance attachments (under the supervision of physicians)
  • Ride alongs on critical care transport ambulances
  • Patient assessments in our primary care clinic
  • Shifts at a remote clinic and maternity ward

The pre-requisite hours may be completed in one trip or learners may return as many times as is necessary to complete the hours and interventions.

Students may elect to stay in Guatemala or can travel elsewhere to complete their clinical phase, providing that a mentor (Paramedic or physician) confirms the hours/interventions in the learners CPD portfolio.
