[audio:SP3_BillDreesInterview.mp3] (1:08:22) This week we have another special episode where Ron interviews the head of his paramedic program Dr. Bill Drees. They talk specifically about the program Ron is in and why it is structured the way it is. What impact will the NREMT accreditation requirement have on paramedic programs and The Street vs The School.
Dr Drees also answers listener questions.
Jamie Davis, podmedic: I’d like to find out what his views are on expanding the amount of distance learning allowed for re-certification of providers? Many EMS providers are working two jobs to make ends meet. Having a cost-effective and time-saving way to gain continuing education credits is imperative in retention of our existing providers.
Timothy Clemans: What would you change to BLS training?
Simon: What curriculum changes does he think are necessary to form a good base for increased pay for medics?
