The EMS Training Division for Pender EMS & Fire takes pride in advancing the knowledge and skills of our employees and volunteers. The division is currently led by Battalion Chief David Dudding. Branched within the Training Division is the Field Training Department. Each shift is designated with a Field Training Officer, responsible for the continued training and education of the employees during operations.
Training is conducted both online and in the class room setting. The EMS Training Division currently instructs BLS, ACLS, PALS, AMLS, and PHTLS throughout the year. Monthly continuing education is also provided through Centre learn objectives and with Core “hands-on” training at the stations. Each employee is given the best opportunity to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to maintaining skills and advancing their medical knowledge.
