In March 2017, the written and practical components of the Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) exam changed.

The written exam expanded to 200 multiple choice questions, and candidates have 3.5 hours to complete all questions.

The practical exam is made up of two components:

  1. an assessment (similar to the previous model)
  2. and a clinical skills evaluation

For the skills evaluation candidates are required to:

  • describe and physically demonstrate CPR and AED use, using proper sequence and technique, as well as hand positioning on high fidelity simulation CPR mannequins
  • describe and physically demonstrate proper spinal motion restriction using a backboard and associated equipment
  • describe and physically demonstrate a third competency (to be chosen from a list of skill stations posted on our website under exams)
