I have been a medic for 15 years and an instructor for 6. I just took a position as a coordinator for a program that has been sanctioned by the state. My job is to turn it around. I am open to all suggestions, ideas, whatever you have. I bang my head off the wall daily. It's really beginning to hurt.

I've been a medic in North-East Ohio for 20+ years and an instructor now for close to ten. I'm always looking for fresh ideas for con ed.

Here is chance to make your needs known to the National Association of State Emergency Medical Services Officials. This is a re-post form the NASEMSO folks,

We invite the EMS education community to participate in our online Basic Life Support (BLS) and/or Advanced Life Support (ALS) surveys to help us identify this priority of needs so that we can strategize about the development of resources.
1. Determine who will provide the institutional or program response for the survey. When feasible, EMS PROGRAM MANAGERS/DIRECTORS should coordinate with ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF to provide a single submission from your EMS Program at the BLS and/or ALS level(s.)
2. Although individual responses are welcome, when feasible, we would prefer that EMS EDUCATORS/INSTRUCTORS from a single program coordinate with FACULTY COLLEAGUES to provide a single submission from your EMS Program at the BLS and/or ALS level(s.)
3. You can preview the survey questions at
4. To respond to the BLS survey, please go to--
5. To respond to the ALS survey, please go to—
6. The deadline for the survey responses is December 4, 2009.
It should not take more than 10 minutes to complete the survey. PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT BEGIN THE SURVEY UNLESS YOU HAVE TIME TO COMPLETE IT. ONCE YOU EXIT THE SURVEY, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RETURN TO REVIEW OR REVISE YOUR ANSWER!! Questions for completing the survey can be directed to NASEMSO Program Manager, Kathy Robinson at Thank you very much for your participation!!

FREE WEBINAR Breathe Life into Your Presentation! Using Games to Teach.

Join emergency responder educators, Greg Friese and John Dillon, for a quick introduction on using games to teach and Audience Response Pads. No preamble, we will jump into how you can use games to teach core content in the first 10 minutes. Participants will use virtual response pads during the webinar as John demonstrates through interactive examples how games and audience response pads can help you know what your audience knows and how you can use that information. We will also show you how you can use a game to deliver information effectively to your audience while keeping them engaged in the learning process.

Two dates to choose from: Wednesday, Nov 4th at 1:00 P.M. CDT /a> or Wednesday, Nov 11th at Noon CDT.

Hello everyone! Been in Michigan EMS for 15 years and a medic and I/C for the past 9 years. Worked for a suburban private not-for-profit in Macomb County and now working up in St. Clair County for another private agency.

Have had my fair share of instructing over the years...close to 20 EMT classes and 10 medic classes or so, teaching all or part of those classes.

Looking forward to participating!

Hey, wanted to share with you a video that we produced in-house for our annual Public Safety Dinner in Woodbury MN. What does it have to do with Education? It is a more inspirational video and just wanted to share it with my fellow instructors. What makes the video even more special is that the music (including the instruments) was done by our Public Safety Director and his 11 year old son.

I like the way you think Kent Spitler! Let's work on International standards of education for paramedics (and elliminate other terms to describe prehospital care providers)
