I am interested, but the date will be a big decision factor for me with a baby on the way and work constraints.

As it stands today, I have enough interest to make the class, but just barely so... I'm a bit surprised, having thought that would be considered valuable training for less than the cost of one range session.

Please post here if you are interested in the class and I'll start working on getting it scheduled next week.
Still looking at a Saturday in September or October as of now.

Thanks.!! :tiphat:



I'd love a refresher in this.. as my Texas EMT and BTLS certification, CPR, State skills examiner certificates have all expired.. :cryin

but, I'd like to find a class in Abilene/Central Texas area..

I would be interested. As others have said, I would need a date to be sure.

Sorry for the delay in getting this confirmed...
It looks like we're zeroing in on 5-October for the class date (tentative).
Still working out how to handle registration/payment for a class that's not on their regular schedule.
They normally handle registrations via NAEMT....

Why is it that nothing simple is ever simple? :lol:

Thanks for your patience.

Unfortunately I won't be able to take October 5th off. I will stay subscribed to the thread in case the date changes.

October 5th works for me, as does any Saturday between now and the week before Thanksgiving.

The 5-October date is confirmed.
Registration will be via the NAEMT web site.
As soon as the class is posted there I'll put up the link here and you'll be able to register.

Sorry for what feels to me like a long process... I really wanted to be out of the money handling loop, otherwise I would have just done it via EventBrite.com for what works out to an additional $3.50 in fees... Regardless.... I should have a registration link for you any day now.

Is Macara going to be the instructor? If so, I might drop in and refresh my skills, too!

Yes, most definitely a lovely young lady (with a very nice husband to go with) and a very GOOD paramedic. I think she's taken over the job of clinical coordinator, now. She came on with MedStar the spring of 2000 IIRC, about the time I was transitioning to my new career that summer.

OK... I finally have registration clarified.... Unfortunately it's a 2-step process... Although not very difficult.

1. Register on the NAEMT web site. LINK HERE
The link will take you to a page titled "Locate a Course". Don't worry, you're on the page for the actual class. No need for searching.
At the bottom of the page you should see this......
Image

Make sure it says "Trauma First Response"
Then click the link "Sign up for this course here"

Fill out and submit the registration. You do not need to fill in any of the EMT/License/etc. stuff if you are not in the EMT business.
I don't know whether any of you can use this for CE (continuing education) credit.... You'll need to figure that one out on your own.
If you find out anything useful, please post it here.

2. Call them to pay
Company is MedStar EMS.
Contact: Lesley Palmer
Phone: +1-817-923-3700
Payment can be made by credit card, or you can mail a check.
Payments need to be received by 30-September.

Other registration details:
- We need at least 8 to confirm the class.... If you're sure you're coming, please register sooner, rather than later so we can lock in the class.
- Capacity is 20 students. I've had indications of interest from roughly 30 people, some of them have indicated they would like to bring friends/coworkers.
- I have no idea what happens when a bunch of people on the internet say yes to a class.... I'm confident we'll have the minimum, I'm concerned we'll be oversubscribed.
- IF you get closed out of registration.... and you're sure you want to come.... Please post in this thread... Tell me the number of people you are sure want to come. Once we're over by 10 or so I will ask them to set up another class for the following weekend, 12-October. There's no guarantee that a 12-October class will happen.

Other class details:
- I've requested that a CPR/AED "refresher" be added to the class. They've agreed to do a 20-minute session (I've never touched an AED, so, I'm in for that).
- Start time will be 09:00, plan to finish around 18:00 (6:PM for us civilians).

Post here if you have any questions. I'll do my best to answer...
Also please post here after you've registered and paid, so I know where we're at, headcount-wise.

Thanks.!

I have registered. Maybe sjfcontrol and I can share a ride if he decides to go.
