This course will qualify instructors to present the classroom portion of the training and provide an orientation to the practical driving exercises. Each participant will act as a student and coach for ambulance driving exercises.

Participants will deliver a practice presentation on one of the lessons and be evaluated, receiving feedback on both areas for improvement and things they did well from their peers (fellow participants) and our instructors. Those who successfully complete the course will be awarded a certificate of completion.

Participants also receive a flash drive containing the complete EVOC Instructor Guide, Participant Manual and all Power Point visuals, a copy of the Federal Specification for the Star-Of-Life Ambulance and a listing of other useful references that are available from the federal government.

Each participant will have the opportunity to practice editing the Instructor Guide to include local and state rules and regulations. The edited version can then be printed and reproduced to meet your organizational training needs.
