TargetSolutions is excited to announce the creation of its EMS Advisory Board. The new six-member panel has been formed to deliver TargetSolutions’ Content team with valuable recommendations to improve existing EMS continuing education courses, as well as review new training material during the development process.

“While we strive to produce the most creative and engaging content possible, it is important that we don’t lose sight of the big picture. We are in this to help keep EMTs and paramedics certified. The TargetSolutions EMS Advisory board will make sure we are on the right track and that our EMS catalog is up-to-date and relevant,” said Content Architect Jeremy Lynch.,” said Content Architect Jeremy Lynch.

The board was initially created in late 2013 and held its first group meeting during the EMS Today Conference in Washington D.C. in February. With more than 160 hours of accredited EMS continuing education courses available on TargetSolutions’ online training system, the board has a unique opportunity to influence existing courses, as well as future EMS refresher training that can be scheduled, delivered and tracked through the industry’s leading computer-based training platform.

TargetSolutions took careful consideration during the selection of members for the board, which features a diverse group of experienced individuals from a wide range of settings across the EMS industry.
