Medical First Responder MFR Classes in Michigan
aka Emergency Medical Responder EMR
This is a Medical First Responder (MFR), also known as an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) Held in Cadillac Michigan. Both the National Registry of EMTs and the State of Michigan recognize the Medical First Responder (MFR) as an important part of the prehospital care system. Often, MFRs, operating through their local fire and rescue departments, are the first providers on scene of an emergency involving a serious medical patient or a patient who has suffered a traumatic injury. The early care provided by MFRs can be essential in saving lives or in limiting the degree to which such an event affects the patient’s life.
The MFR class offered by the Agape Healthcare Schools at its Cadillac site is sanctioned by the State of Michigan. The class involves 70 hours of instruction. Students who complete the requirements for this class will be cleared to take the National Registry of EMTs MFR exam. After passing this exam, they can submit their results and be certified to work as MFRs in the State of Michigan.
Schedule for classes are a couple evenings a week and some Saturdays to make training available for students with full or work schedules. See specific class start dates and full schedules at the top of this page.
The past two years have established the fact that in America there will always be rewarding employment opportunities in the emergency services and healthcare fields. A person with an MFR certification will have enhanced qualifications when applying for a position in these fields, especially with fire departments. They are also stronger candidates when applying for positions as ER technicians. Michigan also offers a bridge class that allows an MFR to count the 70 hours from that class toward completion of the requirements for the EMT Basic class. Many MFR students find when taking the class that their interests and skills are such that continuing their EMS education serves both personal and professional goals.
Once students successfully complete this MFR class they will receive a certificate of completion and will be eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians EMR/MFR exam. Once a student passes their national EMR exam they can apply with the State of Michigan to be licensed to work in Michigan as an EMR/MFR.
