Dear Mike:

Yesterday we finished out a three day Emergency Medical Dispatch course at the Illinois State Police District 22 headquarters in Ullin. I want to thank you for making possible this superior training session for 41 "needy" students from 12 Southern Illinois agencies. I quote just a few of the evaluation comments:

"This course was a more in depth and thorough coverage of emergency medical than others I have been in."

"Very impressed, it will be a standard I hope to use all my professional life. It is three days I will long remember and use many times."

"The instructor's consideration of students without any previous medical background was wonderful."

"This class helped reduce the amount of anxiety I had about starting this new element of the job. I feel more confident now."

"The best instructor I ever had."

 

Although we had 41 people tightly packed in one room they all commented, upon turning in their test papers to instructor Johnny Johnston, as to how great the class was. I am glad I did my homework and chose "Medical Priority Consultants" as our vendor!

As you know, there is a lot of need for telecommunicator training. I am happy to see recognition of this need through your Police Traffic Services Training Project and deeply appreciate the efforts of those involved in the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board. Your direct assistance in obtaining our grant, to include getting the OK to include some Illinois State Police personnel through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria, truly made this class happen!

Sincerely, Michael P. Norrington, Director
