Excellent course! The content, methodology, and delivery of PADL is fulfilling a void in pre-hospital instruction and precepting. Every agency with EMTs and Paramedics will greatly benefit from this curriculum for every provider.

I have had the extraordinary opportunity to watch the PADL program from its inception. I have: worked under a PADL Paramedic (as an EMT), been precepted by a PADL Paramedic (as a Paramedic student), and become a PADL certified Paramedic working with Paramedic and EMT students. Having gone through all of these different stages, I can say without hesitation that the PADL program is a complete game changer. Having recently started precepting, the PADL program has provided me the tools to make my students successful no matter what background they are from. In my humble opinion, there is really no other program like it.
