Are you looking to fine-tune your EMS knowledge and skills while teaching the next generation of EMS professionals? EMT Utah is always looking for qualified, experienced, and competent EMS educators.
EMT Utah’s instructors and course coordinators work on a part-time or PRN (as needed) basis teaching EMT, AEMT, and BLS courses at our three main EMT campuses (Salt Lake City, Orem, and Clearfield). Educators work closely with other instructors and course coordinators to teach didactic and psychomotor course content to our students and are expected to act with the utmost professionalism in all their dealings. Newly hired instructors and course coordinators will be guided through our Instructor Development Program (IDP) upon hire, which includes following one of our more seasoned instructors through multiple courses to learn about our policies and procedures, get comfortable lecturing and instructing skills in a controlled environment, become familiar with course requirements (including state and national testing procedures), develop an effective and individualized personal teaching style, and eventually feel comfortable teaching on their own.
