Why Did You Decide to Become a
CPR/First Aid Trainer?

Paul, just like the dentists and teams he teaches, decided to become a paramedic because he wanted to help people when they needed it the most. Eventually, he realized that the skills he used every day on the job would be extremely useful for dental practices, since they have medical personnel who treat a wide variety of patients and need to be prepared for just about everything. He also has a love for teaching and seeing the “light bulb” come on in people’s heads when they grasp a new concept. He understood that by becoming a trainer, he could indirectly help countless patients across the country.
