CPD: Emergency Vehicle Operations

Learn about the physical, psychological and legal issues involved when driving an emergency vehicle. The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires formal instruction for the drivers of ambulances. This is NOT a course on "hot" pursuit, but rather education on the safety and skills necessary to maneuver these vehicles including a custom obstacle course to simulate field situations.
Students will be required to complete both the classroom portion of the course and a timed driving course.

PREREQUISITE: Valid Driver's License. Each Student MUST provide an ambulance or Fire apparatus for use during the driving portion of the course.
