Thought Exercise For The EMS Educators

Who’s your ideal EMT student? In terms of aptitude, attitude and motivation, what type of student would you like to have?

Here’s mine:

Female, late twenties to mid-thirties. Some college education, perhaps a degree, but in a non-healthcare field. At least one kid. In a stable relationship or a marriage.

Oh, and she plans to become a volunteer EMT.

So what’s yours? Give me your thoughts, and I’ll share the rationale for mine.
