SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. Hey guys, I was considering doing residency in the US in the future, and might like to do some part-time work in EMS while I'm there. I have my Emergency Medical Responder training, and I'd like to know if this is recognized as equivalent to the EMT-B...if not, could you check this link and see how the skills compare to the EMT-B, and give me a rough idea of what skills I might be lacking in? Lastly, if it is not recognizable, but I do have the same knowledge/skills of an EMT-B, is there a way to challenge the course? The link for the Canadian EMR program, and its description is here: http://www.jibc.bc.ca/paramedic/programs/para_programs/emr.htm Thanks for any help.
