Reviews & Testimonials

From press release, 12/2015:

This is a high-yield course that has come along at a perfect time. We finally have a con-ed course that focuses on us—our resilience, our ability to deal appropriately with our patients in difficult situations and most importantly stay in the game after devastating calls.” Daniel Limmer, Limmer Creative, internationally known speaker and textbook author

The course is brilliant. The way that Sarah built it off of information already memorized by every EMT and Paramedic means it will be much easier to take in the information and remember it later on. Helping people understand the emotional trauma first responders are subjected too is one of Code Green’s goals, and we’re happy to see Sarah’s course getting attention. I can’t wait to be able to take it myself.” Ann Marie Farina, President, The Code Green Campaign

The informational content of the ETLS curriculum is exceptionally germane to the EMS provider population.  It provides a meaningful foundation for a subject matter that is largely overlooked in standard education standards for EMS providers.  The information is logical, well-founded, progresses well in development, and offers the student a firm grasp on important matters of emotional impact.  I envision ETLS to gain parity status with other credentialing courses like ACLS, PHTLS, BTLS, and PALS.  I am confident that in short order, it will become a standard in the education of pre-hospital personnel (and others) in emotional trauma nationwide.” Dr. Keith Monosky, Paramedicine program head, Central Washington University

CLASS 170001, StarFire EMS, Haverhill MA

“ETLS™ is one of the most powerful courses I have ever attended.  As a provider that has had challenges with PTSD and a manager of providers that show signs daily, I cannot recommend this course enough!  I found the knowledge gained not only helpful in my own situation, but gained tools to help others in their situations.  Whether it is a patient’s family or a provider that is in crisis, your approach and the researched data that is applied in your program provides a significant amount of knowledge that I have found in no other class.  Well done and I look forward to being able to take it again in the future!”  Jon B, New Hampshire

“Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help. I can’t wait until you get this further off the ground. It is so needed. Bill H-, Graduate Class One 🙂” Bill H., Massachusetts
