    CPR Instructor?

    Have you worked as an instructor recently? Course costs went up and class sizes decreased. It's not the same as when I first became an instructor in 2005 or so. If you have a network of potential clients, a free facility where you can teach classes, and can fill seats, you might be okay.

    CPR Instructor?

    I became an AHA instructor in July. I don't see how it makes financial sense unless you buy out an established business with a large customer base.

    To the admins/owners

    @Chimpie is the forum guru, but I like Xenforo. We started with Invision Power Board, moved to vBulletin, and then to Xenforo when it was clear vBulletin was a stagnant product.

    EMTLife is Back (with some data loss)!

    After 18 hours of downtime due to a server crash, EMTLIFE is back up with backups from Friday evening. The site was restored from backups. A number of posts and threads posted after the last backup was made have been lost. I appreciate your patience. Please let me know if anything appears...

    Is it okay to go to an interview if you're not sure you want the job or not?

    I've interviewed for positions and declined the job offer. An interview is a great opportunity to learn about the company. On a personal level, I suck at interviews, and I find the more I do the better I perform. Sometimes I interview for the sake of interviewing. After leaving interviews...

    Adulting advice needed.

    Congrats! Now that you're adulting it's time to budget. I've always found a job first and then moved nearby. Find an apartment you can afford, Uhaul your worldly possessions into the place, and then be patient. It's tempting to go out and buy new stuff. Instead I would make sure I had the...

    North Carolina

    EMS in North Carolina is at the county level. Cumberland County / Cape Fear Valley EMS is in Cumberland County. If you're willing to drive, Wake County EMS, Cary EMS, and Eastern Wake EMS seem like better options. I spent some time commuting to a job in Cumberland County and I don't have much...

    Laptop For EMT training?

    To answer your initial question, I don't think you need a laptop with you in class. I would absolutely have a computer at home. During my undergrad and my EMT school laptops weren't prevalent like they are today. I took my notes on lined paper and in most classes re-typed them when I got...

    On-Line Training

    I don't have specific information on the program you mention, but I say go for it. You previously were an EMT, you should have no problem doing a predominantly online course. I think @DrParasite is right about many online programs, but I don't see it being an issue here. As someone who is...
