For the fourth year in a row, AUA Emergency Medicine Training Centre (AUA EMTC), an American Heart Association International Training Center, collaborated with American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) to host a first responder training in India during the 2018 Global Health Summit.

As part of their mission to promote global health around the world, AUA EMTC provided intensive training sessions for first responders in an effort to decrease the number of deaths, especially from road accidents, by arming first responders with the necessary training to deliver basic life support to accident victims. It is hoped that by equipping first responders with these basic skills, a reduction in the number of victims succumbing to their injuries, prior to reaching a hospital, might be minimized.

In the time since the inaugural training, AUA EMTC has become an official National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) Training Center, bringing it to the forefront of both international and national discussions and initiatives that have a significant impact on the Emergency Medical System (EMS) profession.

AUA EMTC is an accredited American Heart Association International Training Center (AHA ITC). AUA EMTC delivers Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers courses. Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) courses are also offered to local and regional pediatric healthcare providers through EMTC.
