This topic goes over the basics of the GCS scale and how to use and apply its findings.

At the end of this lesson, students should be able to understand and apply the Glasgow Coma Scale to patients appropriately.


For CE courses there is no exam. Once the student views the course content, they must complete the "objectives learned assignment" and conduct a course evaluation.


EMTs require constant training and continuing education.

While online training can assist in an EMTs training, receiving hands-on training is also important.

Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment an employer's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training that is supplied by their own company. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.

This course has one section, which should take approximately 45 minutes to complete, and is followed by a final assignment and course evaluation.
