Fire and EMS

Our first responder training supports fire, EMS/EMT, ambulance corps, police, and emergency personnel getting the best training from one of the leading universities in the world, the University of Rochester.

Fire and EMS Industry Challenges

Finding interactive, interesting, and affordable state-approved first responder training is difficult. Keeping track of training for all of your volunteers and paid staff can be even harder. It can often take a training director several hours or days a week to keep track of certificates and certifications, contact team members, and track when and which training is required for each volunteer or paid employee. In every state, paid and volunteer fire companies, ambulance corps, police, and other emergency medical providers (such as hospitals) are required to be certified, and to annually earn Continuing Medical Education Units (CMEs). Finding CME training that is medically sound, meets state requirements, and allows you to assign training by job functionality and role, while also tracking credit hours provided through live training events or from providers outside the organization, is a difficult and time-consuming task. Further, having a robust notification, assignment, and reporting back-end often requires multiple systems or approaches.
