    Best EMT skills demonstration on the market!

    Ready for the 2012 NREMT Exam!!!! I have been an EMT instructor for almost 20 years now, and when the NREMT revised its skills tests this last year, I frantically tried to find a video that was up-to-date on the new standards. Typically, most books and videos are out-of-date as soon as they hit the market, and I almost gave up. But then somebody recommended this DVD. To my delight, this was by far the best and most accurate DVD I have ever seen, and it is 110% consistent with the latest NREMT standards. I am now using this video in my class and my students each have their own copy. I have them watch it before coming to each practice lab, and so far this has been the smartest move I have ever made. Labs are running more smoothly, students and instructors are on the same page so consistency is way improved (and every instructor knows how tough it is to achieve consistency in skills instruction), and my students love the video. It's not just informative; it's attention-grabbing and fun to watch. Every other EMS video I have ever used was so boring that I was lucky if my students would watch it one time through! But this video is so good that some of my students are actually watching it 2 or 3 times a week! Some people may criticize the scenes because they aren't set up like some dramatic, real-life reenactment. But come on, this is not supposed to be "Rescue 911." It's set up to reflect exactly the environment that the student will face when he/she goes to take the big test. To me, that is way more important for entry-level EMTs. Great graphics, helpful tips, close-ups of step-by-step instructions, and very knowledgeable and skilled actors - the people who put this video together really knew their stuff! Worth every penny; I would have paid twice as much!
