I am a very pragmatic person and will often deliberate over choices for a time. I chose the SOS EMT-B course over other Medical course at the time due to the reviews, location and the hands on experience offered.
From day one I knew I had made the right choice but I must stress that you must be prepared academically and have a very good understanding of anatomy & physiology. The lessons are fast paced, hands on and technical. They are interspersed with scenarios and situations and the camaraderie between the group, the instructor and the Fire station staff is a lasting highlight of the course. The streets of Guatemala City are the best place in the world to get the experience that even full time medics in Europe would find hard to get.
I highly recommend this course and I will be returning to Guatemala to study for the EMT-P course. I honestly can't wait.
