About our EMS Leadership Academy Training Curriculum

For best results we highly recommend that our three core programs be delivered together over a short period of time, typically over 2-3 days or alternatively over three weeks (twice a week).

The EMS Leadership Academy courses are designed to build on each other to create a transformational experience that will cause positive, long-lasting change for the participants.

Organizations who have participated in our programs have begin to eliminate gossip, transformed their membership and created a magnetic environment that thrives, not just survives.

Participants who have taken the Advanced Leadership courses have developed a vision for their organization's future and fulfilled on that.

The below courses have been designed for delivery to EMS audiences, if you would like to bring the EMS Leadership Academy to your region or organization, contact us.

You can also get a taste of what our training is like by taking our online training programs.
