  1. Here's a question that comes up often with my fellow instructors. We have students that range in age from 18 to 60. It's challenging because they learn differently. Being a Baby Boomer I can reach other Boomers and the Gen Xers fairly easily. I'm looking for techniques to keep the Millenials focused and on point.
  2. I think you are on the right course. I have had a lot of students that did the B-EMT and went right into the Paramedic course without working the road. I discourage this for a few reasons. The main reason is that you get a lot of time and money invested in an education, for a profession that you may decide isn't what you want. Get your Basic, work the road and then decide if this is for you. If you have a goal of being a firefighter, you will need the EMS certifications for a lot of Fire Departments so they go hand in hand. Still, see if this is what you really want and can handle. You don't want to spend a couple of years in training and several thousand dollars to find out that you weren't cut out for this or that you really don't like.
