I'm your Instructor
Jeffrey S. Imel, WEMT, NREMT
Emergency Medical Services Educator
I am a National Registry Emergency Medical Technician and Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician. I hold instructor certifications in First Aid, CPR/AED, First Responder and Wilderness First Aid.
My life mission is to teach people with no medical background how they can save lives in the first critical minutes of a medical emergency. I have over three decades of teaching experience and I believe you will find my method of instruction to be enjoyable.
I am the author of two books, First Aid Emergency Care and Wilderness First Aid Made Easy. My books illustrate first aid care and treatment using intuitive “Yes-No” decision diagrams. These books significantly reduce the time first aid students spend taking notes in class and students who use my books report increased retention and achieve higher test scores. My book and teaching method will increase your confidence during the scenario portions of the course and serve as an excellent review tool to help you keep your knowledge refreshed.
