  • "I recently completed running the PEPP course 6 times for our firefighter medics. The faculty was complimentary of the format of the lectures and the back up DVD for skills and visual reference, and as a coordinator and an instructor, I found the course to be easy to administer and teach. The course promotes great dialogue and valuable didactic exchange between instructor and all the students. The feedback I received from our firefighters was all positive. I look forward to running the program again and I wanted to write and let you know how pleased we were with the entire PEPP experience!"

    "I just wanted to take a few moments to let you know how valuable the PEPP Course is to our Paramedics and EMT Basics. I attended one of the first PEPP instructor rollouts in Chicago. The scenarios and teaching topics covered are the situations that we need to review for BLS and ALS care of our pediatric patients. With the addition of the resuscitation modules and ability for online didactic, minimizing the costs for the departments and the ease of obtaining instructors and cards, it is a complete program. I cannot thank you enough for listening to the prehospital professional and their needs."
