TOP REVIEWS FROM EMT FOUNDATIONS
Great course! Could be challenging to new EMTs, but the content is excellent. The Bootcamp portion with Denver Health was top notch! Highly recomend!
A very thorough course, going through the fundamentals of being an EMT. It helped me to learn new skills and refresh on my old ones. Definitely recommend for anyone to do.
The presenters were very informed and the information was delivered in a very structured and easy-to-follow manner. The reference materials followed this pattern as well.
I took this course as a refresher. As a Navy Corpsman I was a certified EMT and really wanted to maintain this skill set. So i used this as a refresher before my NRT. It was exactly what I needed.
