April 12, 2014 CEVO 3 course

First introduced in the early 90’s, the Coaching the Emergency Vehicle Operator™ (CEVO) courses for ambulance, fire and police personnel quickly became accepted as standards in driver training for these fields. Since then, over 500,000 emergency professionals have been trained with the CEVO™ programs. 

Now, based on valuable input from participants, instructors, and loss prevention professionals, a revised and updated CEVO 3: Ambulance™ course is available.

As with the original program, operators will appreciate CEVO 3’s non-lecture, participant-intensive educational approach, and instructors will appreciate the program’s flexible and easy-to-use format. The core 8-hour course is divided into six sessions.

Course will be held on Saturday, April 12, 2014.

Starting at 9:00 am till 5:00 pm.

The cost of the course is $25.00

Location: Sanilac Medical Services classroom

Graduates receive CEVO 3 patch and certificate.
