Instructor Office Hours. I hold Instructor Office Hours every Tuesday at 8:00 PM EST (0100 UTC) on Zoom. When you register for recertification you will receive an email with the Zoom link.

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. I have over three decades of teaching experience.

My life mission is to educate people with no medical background how to deliver aid in the first critical minutes of a medical emergency and continue to provide care while waiting for EMS to arrive.

I am the author of four first aid books. 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.​
