If you are reading this information about Respond Right EMS Academy’s EMT Training, it is most likely because you have a dream of serving your community as a first responder.  You have an interest in the fast-paced career of emergency medicine and a passion for helping people. EMT’s are trained to provide basic-level life support on the sick and injured. The profession that you are choosing demands hard work, self-motivation and dedication. Most of all, it requires the self-sacrifice of putting others’ lives ahead of your own.  So why choose Respond Right EMS Academy for your EMT training?
At Respond Right EMS Academy, EMT training is in our blood, it’s what we do! Owned and operated by myself, Toni Milan, Paramedic and Donna Weiss, Firefighter / Paramedic, we exists to raise the bar in EMS education and exceed entry level standards. We strive to provide excellence in education and inspire our students through creative teaching methods and a realistic, professional learning environment. Accredited since 2009 by the Missouri Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, Respond Right EMS Academy has been a force to be reckoned with, changing industry standards by reducing class sizes, lowering the student to instructor ratios and providing transparent, up-front course pricing to students.  We have empowered students with providing important information before they enroll, so they know what to expect.
Students should understand what is expected of them and what type of class best suits them before enrolling.  Will they perform best in the traditional 16 week in-person training, or will they do better in the hybrid EMT course?  Some students do not realize the amount of work and dedication that is involved in the EMT training.  It’s our job to help them understand so they can be successful and pass the state and national exams.  To learn more about the different types of EMT training formats, check out, ‘What type of training is best for me’.
