William McClincy, MS, BS,

Quality education starts and ends with competent and knowledgeable instruction. Today’s students demand that educational programs be informative and challenging. With accreditation of EMS programs on the horizon—and the mandate that instructors develop their own teaching materials, not simply use “canned” materials off the shelf—EMS instructors need clear, detailed direction on course design and tools to enhance their courses.

Instructional Methods for Public Safety offers a broad-spectrum view of the latest educational trends and cutting-edge information on emergency services instruction. Based on the current National Guidelines for Educating EMS Instructors by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and encompassing the recommendations of the EMS Education Standards, this resource offers new and experienced instructors concise guidance on the development of high-quality, interactive educational and assessment tools.
