I am also half way through my EMT training course. I feel it will help me attend to clients because so many of them have medical issues that come up. I would feel comfortable knowing that if a client was having a heart attack I would be able to help them.

I have done substitute teaching for a couple of years and have also worked with special needs children. I worked
