Hennepin EMS Emergency and Critical Care educators and instructors are the front line education staff for the department. Not only do these staff members provide annual team education and re-certification, they provide initial education to EMR, EMT, and paramedic students, as well as continuing education for thousands of providers of all medical training levels.

Educators/instructors have the ability to create their own curriculum, when not defined by external requirements. Education staff also have the unique opportunity of working closely with young adults from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds through the EMS Pathways Academy; a student-intern program formed in collaboration with the Minneapolis Fire Dept.
