What is Our Involvement With EMS Training?
Fire & Police Departments, Rescue & Ambulance Squads contact us to design, develop & maintain their training needs for their entering & existing personnel, involving…
- Introductory courses for people who are unsure about how much they can or want to get involved
- Emergency Medical Responder courses for people who want to help but are unable to commit the time necessary to obtain, and maintain, an EMT licensure.
- EMT Training for people who are able to commit to all the class hours & work that goes into becoming licensed at this level. This also enables First Responders to step up to the next level of care
