In May 2013, TargetSolutions’ Content team members Lauren Crosby and Christina Valenti completed their EMT certification through San Diego’s EMSTA College and successfully passed their National Registry exams. Although they really enjoy working in the field whenever they get a chance, their primary motivation was to serve clients using TargetSolutions’ online EMS training system.

TargetSolutions is putting Crosby and Valenti’s knowledge to use with an exciting new feature inside recently revised EMS recertification courses called “Ask an Instructor.” While taking an EMS refresher course, users can ask questions about the content of the course “live” as they’re taking it, and the EMTs are logged in ready to answer.

Crosby and Valenti will be logged in to this live chat feature Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (PST) and on Friday from 8 a.m. to Noon (PST). In the event they are not logged in to answer a question immediately, the question will be submitted to a queue and users will receive an answer within 24 to 48 hours.

“Ask an Instructor is not only a great way for users to get answers regarding content quickly, but it also allows us to communicate with our users about best practices and protocols in the EMS industry,” said Valenti.
This feature will appear in EMS courses as they are revised. For TargetSolutions’ ALS course offerings, or questions beyond the EMT’s scope of practice, the content team has a Medical Director on staff to provide expertise and ensure the information supplied is accurate.
