    Possibly. I'll be interviewing in a couple of weeks. Passed a written and practical test already.

    You can never go wrong with documentation. There's ways to not make it so dry and boring also. Do you do in house or contracted billing? If you use an ems billing company they may be willing to help you out on documentation classes.

    This times 100. If you lose the audience you might as well pass out the power point and go home. Often the books will have online resources to use as well, ranging from power points, to lesson plans and videos. I recommend against using them verbatim, but they can give you great ideas of ways to go you haven't thought of. You don't want to spend too long on any one media, especially in a fire school setting. If I remember right, the major publishers design ems materials to the tenth grade level. Keep that in mind as well. Switch up media from videos to slides to hands on. Even if you don't want to teach full time, I'd highly recommend taking some courses in adult education. With the right instructor you can learn lots about communication and theory

    Somehow I always seem to log on to the site for the first time in ages, during cap lab. Interesting how that works.

    She took one of his really nice "rims" and sold it to a Mexican for $150. Whoops. Her brother didn't like me anyway. Or her dad. Or most of her friends. Guess it wasn't a huge loss. Although she's the reason I dropped/failed out of college. I don't see that as. Gigantic loss though, considering the opportunities I've had, and I'm back in school now. Alls well that ends well. The way I see it, it's the most eff'ed up times in life that shape us, nd those times we feel glples, we actually have the most control of our destiny.

    That will be 1 billable hour at $125 please.

    I wish! I only allow myself 2-3 days of beer drinking a year. My liver is in bad enough shape as it is.

    You know I just had my gallbladder out, they surgeon had to punch another hole, because my fatty liver was wrapping around my gall bladder. He had to fight it off.

    Full Disclosure
    In the interest of full disclosure. I feel like I should share, I am a state certified EMT through 3/31/14 but currently I am no longer working as an EMT on an ambulance. Only as a FD first responder.
    Also I never finished my PI class.
    I was fired from a job once, but it wasn't medically related.
    I also took $100 from an ex girlfriend after we broke up. She blamed it on her brother and stole something of his. I'd hate to see what that ballooned into.i never fessed up, and I wouldn't even know how to get ahold of her today, almost 9 years later.

    I still remember my jaw dropping, when I logged into Radio Reference and had a PM from no one other than.... Rob. I had no idea the man was a closet whacker.

    I was googling something, not even thinking about Dust, and this post came up.

    My poor co-workers last night, I was laughing out loud just reading it.
