This concise manual covers "gap" content - required content in the EMS Education Standards that is not reflected in the previous DOT curriculum. As states transition to the new Standards, many will be required to train current providers up to the new knowledge and skills level. This text will focus only on those key knowledge points that practicing EMT-Bs did not necessarily learn in their initial training.
