I personally teach onsite Wilderness First Aid classes for groups and organizations in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. Unlike most other Wilderness First Aid medical schools, I do not use contract instructors to teach courses.

Jeffrey S. Imel, WEMT, NREMT
Emergency Medical Services Educator

I am a National Registry Emergency Medical Technician and Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician. I hold instructor certifications in First Aid, CPR/AED, Basic Life Support, First Responder and Wilderness First Aid.

My life mission is to teach people with no medical background how they can save lives in the first critical minutes of a medical emergency. I have over three decades of teaching experience and I believe you will find my method of instruction to be enjoyable.

I am the author of three books, First Aid Emergency Care, Wilderness First Aid Made Easy and Emergency First Aid for New Parents. My books illustrate first aid care and treatment using intuitive “Yes-No” decision diagrams. These books significantly reduce the time first aid students spend taking notes in class and students who use my books report increased retention and achieve higher test scores. My book and teaching method will increase your confidence during the scenario portions of the course and serve as an excellent review tool to help you keep your knowledge refreshed.​

When you schedule a course with me, you know that your group will be taught by an enthusiast subject matter expert.
