COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT - KCI EMT TRAINING

We’re facing an unprecedented time. Our families, businesses and communities are all being affected by the coronavirus. Together, we will get through this and I wanted to update you on the measures that KCI EMT Training is taking to ensure continuity of EMS Training service while protecting our customers, partners and team members as COVID-19 runs its course.

KCI EMT Trainings operations and services will not be impacted by COVID-19. As a precautionary measure, all KCI EMT Training team instructors have transitioned to working from home through at least the end of April. Our teams are being asked to work with students through digital channels as much as possible. This means we’re adhering to cancellations and postponing in-person classroom trainings and all skills practices, until we can assure the health and safety of our students, staff and community. Our workforce is already very diverse geographically, well-equipped and digital. Expect no disruption in service.

Please visit KCI EMT Training on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where we are sharing blogs and digital media content and safety-related information regarding the COVID-19 situation.
