Medic

Medic Unit 

Unit Description:

The Cadet-Medic Training Unit is rigorous and academically challenging. It is an entry-level course in emergency medical response designed to prepare cadets to serve as cadet-medics within their units or state staff. Upon successful completion, cadets will be certified by the American Red Cross as Emergency Medical Responders (EMR).

Cadets who complete the course and earn the Cadet Medic Badge will be able to demonstrate the knowledge base, skills, and practical application for immediate life saving measures and interventions (e.g., CPR/AED and First Aid).

This course aids in the preparation of students who have interest in Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), public safety and emergency medicine careers.
