Chicago EMT Training is an amazing program that has prepared me extremely well to become an EMT-B (basic). More importantly, this 18-week course made me a better person. Victor and Marty are great people who are incredibly dedicated to your learning and genuinely wish the best for you. They push you to achieve high standards with support and encouragement, and I think this program produces the most knowledgeable and skilled EMTs in the area. Their Youtube channel has some of the most informative emergency medicine videos out there. The training is a wonderful investment, whether you are in a career change, hoping to acquire clinical hours for other healthcare professions, or simply want to feel more confident handling emergency situations.
