The Story Behind the Picture

The Story Behind the Picture

By Dan Limmer There’s a shelf in my office where I keep copies of all the editions of all the books I’ve written. For me, each book carries memories—of the time when it was written, the curriculum that was in place at the time, and the advances in medicine that we were able to incorporate. […]

10 Things We Learned About the NREMT Exam from Bill Brown

We’ve worked with Bill Brown, the former Executive Director of the NREMT, on both our EMT PASS and AEMT PASS apps. His knowledge and experience with the NREMT exam have been invaluable to us as a test prep company.  While working with Bill, we had quite a bit of time not only to chat with […]

What is the ideal exam prep for you? You want practice exams. You want to be able to measure your knowledge—to know where you stand. But it’s not all about exams.

Suctioning in the Real World

Suctioning in the Real World

by Dan Limmer I recently taught at an EMS conference in Connecticut. The topic of suctioning came up. We talked about how we’d been taught wrong for some time. If wrong seems like a tough word—then at the very least we can say that what we learned is unrealistic. This is what we were taught […]

Volunteer EMS and Training: Mutually Exclusive?

Volunteer EMS and Training: Mutually Exclusive?

By Dan Limmer A recent article in the Press-Republican from upstate New York titled “Editorial: State must reduce obstacles to EMTs” stated: “Ever-increasing state training requirements are thinning the already strained ranks of emergency medical technicians and costing communities money.” Hogwash.

Educators in the Field: Preceptors and FTOs

Educators in the Field: Preceptors and FTOs

By Dan Limmer How “street ready” is an EMT student when he or she passes a class and the NREMT? Agencies want providers who are well prepared, but in most cases that isn’t the reality. To be prepared to do the job, a new EMT needs time in the field with either a preceptor or […]

10 Things You Should Know About Medical Emergencies

In EMT class, many students don’t realize there’s a significant difference between the medical patient and the trauma patient. The difference begins at assessment and continues through care.

Five Things EMT Classes MUST Teach

You don’t have to look far to find an online discussion where students are talking about feeling unprepared for the NREMT exam—especially at the EMT level. Many are saying the tests they took in class are nothing like the NREMT—and they’re right. When updated education standards were released seven years ago, EMS education was supposed […]
