"One of the main reasons I chose ESA besides its CMA accreditation was that its instructors are still practicing EMT's and Paramedics. They are informative, approachable, and I really appreciated the small class sizes. We are more than just a face in the crowd. Being on first name basis and having instructors know you is the only way to learn. "
