I got trained by the same company, but at a different program. (bearEMT at UC Berkeley)

The instructors are very helpful and have tons of experience. My instructor (Dave, the one with long blond hair) has been a paramedic for decades and has just returned from the middle east a year ago. His lecture was always entertaining and his practice sections were on point. Owner of the company also taught my class during the practice sections, and he always treats students with respect and has the student’s future in mind. I think all of us who had a real interest in EMT passed NREMT and got the state license.

The only problem i had was the ridealong schedule. If you finish your paperwork late then you might have a really late ridealong.

Royal ambulance has a pretty good relationship with Defib This and is willing to hire new EMTs.

TLDR: If you have the money, do it. Instructors have plenty field/teaching experience. The class is fun if you are really interested.

Aspiring entrepreneurs take on a task way beyond themselves just because they were at the top of their craft in a totally different ball game; humility and balls is all I have to say. Good for them regardless how financially well they’ve become or not. We should all take notes Santa Cruz on what bravery looks like

I’m not a fan of online surveys.

I attended my ACLS recertification class and BLS Challenge yesterday, and enjoyed being in a classroom and learning.

I’m glad to see that in-classroom classes are mandatory for certifications and re-certifications. Effective teams are important in healthcare, and one of the best ways to work on team dynamics is participating in person. (ZOOM classes IMHO do not necessarily provide the best learning outcomes.)

The instructor. Alex Williams, did a great job providing realistic practicums for each individual student, knowing their backgrounds and what they would encounter in their clinical practice. He is also very knowledgable on the critical thinking skills for a successful resuscitation.

Facility bathroom needs work with the toilet paper dispenser (could not load the paper) and the soap dispensers not working. There was no stand alone (hand pump) soap dispenser or hand sanitizer.

Good Afternoon Defib

I had my BLS course yesterday . Service was great. The receptionist greeted me with a smile ..

Facility was clean . One thing I would say is that it was cold and other students agreed as well . I always enjoy Bob F. his instruction makes the class enjoyable. He is easily approachable when I have questions or concerns and very knowledgeable.

See you in two years
