As an EMS professional you have sat in class, studied the content, taken the exams and have even continued your education in CEU's.

Have you found that EMS instructor who is patient, understanding and knowledgeable? The one who takes that extra time to explain something or sympathizes with the stress levels you are under during your skills exam? Good for you.
