ABSTRACT

Study objective
To evaluate the adequacy of level-2 EMT training program and the future of students after receiving EMT certification. And then to search the ideas for improving the quality of education and the rates of getting employment.
Design
Retrospective review of the personnel datas, and the written survey
Setting
University teaching hospital Participants : The 83 students had finished the level-2 EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) training program of 324 hours between August 21, 1995 and November 15, 1995. And the 72 of those were examined by the written questions and the survey of the personal card.
Results
: The mean age of the students was 30士5.6 years. The gender ratio of male to female was 65:7. The marital status of students was 32 married. The educational status of the students was, in all, more than high school graduation. The present addresses of students were Daegu 73.6%, Kyeungbuk 16.7%, Kyeungnam 4.2%. The students who have no job for life support were 41.7%. In written survey, 56.9% of the students answered that the contents and teaching techniques had been inappropriate. Also 52.8% of the students answered that the duration of training program had been insufficient. All but one were passed the national examination for certification and certified as level-2 EMT, but anyone of them could not take a job for EMT.
Conclusion
In Korea, because the medical control of prehospital care of patients and victims is off-line system, the education and training of EMT is very important. But all designated facilities and teachers have no sufficient preparations for the education and training of EMT. And anyone could not get employment for EMT, although they had spent much times and costs for certification of EMT. So powerful policies and laws will be needed for qualitative improvement and activation of regional EMSS.
Key words: Level-2 EMT training program
