The problem: Manual, outdated training management processes
Among their essential leadership duties, Emergency Medical Services Training Officers have limited time and resources to devote to in-depth training management, documentation, and tracking. The fact that many agencies still use paper-based processes and spreadsheets to manage their EMS training programs doesn’t help, often spending thousands of dollars on printing and material costs alone.
Manual paper systems for managing and tracking EMT and paramedic training are cumbersome, labor-intensive, and error-prone. Too often, Training Officers struggle to piece together up-to-date training information while sifting through loose, disorganized papers and piles of decades-old records. They can't keep track of every employee’s training records to ensure all EMS responders are properly trained. This can lead to knowledge gaps that impact your quality of service and create liability and compliance risks for the agency.
