an EMT is a huge decision that comes with unique responsibilities and the
highest of stakes. Everyday our graduates are responding to critical situations
where they truly are the difference between life and death. There is no feeling
more rewarding than having the family of somebody you saved or the individual
themselves seek you out to thank you for performing a life saving service that
very few people on this planet are capable of executing. When an EMT responds to an accident, they
are joining fire fighters and law enforcement on high risk missions, or are
transporting a patient; knowing what to do is only part of the equation. We
believe that hands on simulation is essential. This is why we have created a
facility that will reproduce lifelike scenarios our students are likely to
encounter to ensure our students know what to do and are comfortable doing it.
