Meet the Instructors

Pass with PASS, LLC was founded in 2019 after realizing a need in initial EMS education. There were multiple in-person review courses for other examinations such as the NCLEX, FNP, FP-C/CCEMT-P, but there were very few options for in-person review courses targeting the NREMT examinations. Since our inception, we have added study guides, recorded NREMT review/prep lectures, private online tutoring and NREMT and State approved continuing education!

 

The pair worked together for nearly 10 years in the fire service and in higher education where they produced solid first-time pass rates within their programs. However, they knew they could help even more students be successful by going to them directly instead of hitting only those within their community. With this, Pass with PASS, LLC was born...
