Grading and Testing Policies

The EMR course at Emergency Medical Classes is very competitive. Students are required to obtain an
80% on every exam in order to stay in the class for certification testing. All exams are multiple choice
and computer based. Students have the opportunity to use a retesting option in the event they do not
obtain the minimum score of 80% on an exam. A total of three retest options are available. Only one
retest option can be used per unit exam. The retest score that is obtained by the student must be
80%. If a student does not score an 80% this will be counted as a strike. Students are permitted to
obtain three strikes before they are not able to take the certification examination.

Course Difficulty

The EMR class at Emergency Medical Classes is designed to challenge students. Instructors will typically
cover two to eight chapters a week. The examinations are designed to mimic the types of questions
that will be seen on the certification exam at the end of the course in an attempt to prepare
students for the rigors of this examination. Students should be feel comfortable reading at the
12th grade level . A greatamount of studying is required outside of class.

Criminal record

A student's criminal history is examined on a case by case basis by the Indiana Department of
Homeland Security, EMS Division. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security, has the final
say over whether a student is allowed to obtain certification at the end of the course based on
the findings from their investigation. Emergency Medical Classes has no control or influence over
this process or outcome and is subsequently not liable for any student that cannot certify due to
criminal history.
