Here is the link for the Center for Emergency Medicine in Pittsburgh.

They should be able to point you in the right direction. I know that you have to have all of the certs that the medics have, that you have to challenge the medic test, and get signed off on skills that you have never done or are not very good at, such at intubating, cric's, needle decompressions, and stuff like that.

Another good website that may be able to give you more information would be http://www.flightweb.com.

Hope this helps!

The institute is located in Allentown, PA.

They have a pre-hospital RN course. I believe it starts in October and/or February and is 6 months or so.

HTH.

EMIs course is excellent. It starts in January, concludes in July. It costs $1000 and can be paid in 2 payments. If you call 610-969-0259, they can hook you up. If you'd like, you can e-mail me and I can give you the goods. I fly for a different hospital though =:) sparkyhp@verizon.net
