EMS OPS Report

Winter 2016- Weeks 5/6

Great Job Everyone!

Hello Everyone,


We made it past the halfway point and are already a few short weeks away from the end of the Winter 2016 Term. Everyone is doing an excellent job making sure our students are compliant with the Uniform Policy and Code of Conduct.

Remember that our standards are only as good as what we choose to tolerate.

Please continue to push our students to study and become self-directed learners. We can show them what to do, but the only way they will be successful is by doing the hard work themselves.

Please review the following information and contact me with any questions or concerns.

The New paramedic course starting in the Spring 2016 Term will be on Mondays 9am-9pm.

The Spring 2016 Paramedic 5 course will be on Wednesdays 9am-3pm.

American Heart Association Instructors

The 2015 Instructor Updates are now available on the AHA Instructor Network. This short online update course must be completed and the certificate of completion mailed, scanned or faxed to me in order to continue teaching any AHA course.

Please log into the instructor network (www.ahainstructornetwork.org) in order to complete the update course in your specified discipline. If you are an instructor in multiple disciplines, you must complete each update and send each certificate. I do not have access to your username and password so any issues with logging in will need to be directed to the AHA either by email or phone. The online update class for each discipline is roughly 1 hr long.

Employee Schedule

It is important for us to make sure that we have an adequate number of personnel assigned for the skills lab sessions. Because of our busy schedules this can be difficult at times. Ideally, we should always have a ratio of at least 1 instructor for every 6 students. Please attempt to review the Skills Lab Instructor schedule as often as possible and if there is an opening, request to be assigned if you are able. I will The schedule is not posted online so it will be possible to see updates to the schedule on a daily and weekly basis. If you would like to pick up a shift please contact any of the following people who are able to make updates: Doug Rose, Anders Wisdom, John Schwall, Warren Happell.

The employee schedule has been shared with all employees as a Google Sheet. You can use the following link:
