One of the goals of WEMS is to provide the community with the opportunity to learn skills that can be used in their own homes in the event of a medical emergency. Another is to offer quality Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses for already existing providers in the area.
WEMS is an American Heart Association (AHA) Certified Training Site that oversees over 200 First-Aid & CPR instructors in the area. AHA offers First-Aid & CPR courses for all levels.
At WEMS we pride ourselves on our quality of care and put that same energy into the courses we teach. In addition to First-Aid & CPR for our community, we also provide course instruction for existing providers and offer courses to go toward recertification through the Continuing Medical Education Program.
Our Certified Instructor Coordinators (CIC) have over 100 years of combined emergency medicine experience. In addition, many have taken the National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE) course, providing them with specific knowledge in how to educate EMS providers.
