Montana is very short on EMS personnel and Whiteline Consulting and Training has stepped up to help get EMTs into services!
Whiteline has EMT courses throughout Montana, yes you heard that right – throughout! They have dedicated instructors who travel to bring EMT courses to Montana areas.
Whiteline has a course coming up in Vaughn, MT at the Vaughn Fire Hall starting June 2nd every Thursday and Friday night from 6pm to 9:30pm and every other Saturday 9am to 4pm.
This course is all in person and hands on; the cost of the course is $900 plus the cost of the book, but don’t panic over the course cost because they have a payment plan that is set for each person’s needs! They strive to create educated, strong and compassionate EMTs to bring to all Montana communities far and wide. This is a unique course and the reason I say unique is because this company brings in guest speakers to help further students education into pre-hospital care.
The instructors make sure to go into depth about depression, suicide, ptsd and mental health. Why? Because Montana is in the top 5 for suicide rates…Whiteline is here to bring back compassion and understanding to the EMS world again. If you have any questions or if you are curious you can check out the website and email them at www.whitelinetraining.com.
Whiteline wants everyone to know that past and future EMS students throughout Montana are amazing and some of the bravest out there. Take into consideration they are taking these courses during a pandemic; they are coming to the front lines with no hesitation.
The EMS world is hard and can be dark at times but for them to want to help and care for others is an amazing quality. Becoming an EMT is one of the most rewarding professions.
Being able to help others in the worst times of their life and being that calming, compassionate and trusting person to bring light to their darkness. EMTs aren’t there for the pay or fame; they are there because they want to be. They are there to help, to care, to connect and most of all lighten the darkness that the patient is in. Being able to connect with a stranger and bring a smile or a small chuckle to their face is an amazing feeling.
Being in EMS isn’t always trauma; it’s being someone the patient can trust knowing they have someone that will truly listen to them and believe them, being the shoulder and listening ear when dying sounds better then living. It’s knowing they can call 911 and trust having complete strangers help them. It’s knowing that they will be safe and heard.
Being an EMT isn’t just a job or lifestyle or just training to help….it’s a passion for compassion towards others.
