An Emergency Medical Responder Training Success Story

Posted by Jessica Carmichael on 3/27/14, 11:03 AM

Last year, educators at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School reached out to Jordan Khoury REMT-B I/C to teach an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course for a group of students in their senior class. Due to student's busy schedules, it was decided that the blended training model would be ideal for both students and instructors. This was the first time the school offered an EMR course and according to Khoury, it was a success:

"We had 10 students in the class (1 being a teacher). The course went over well and we are being asked to return for the September 2014 Senior Class...We have 2 students from this class that are very interested in moving up into the EMT Class after graduation. This was a win-win situation for both BPHS and JB Learning."

The EMR class at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School had photos taken for their local newspaper and were kind enough to share them with our Public Safety team:
