Meet the Team

Family Owned and Operated since 1985

Our Instructors...


All of our instructors have years of experience in various fields of public safety and education. We'll match you with a lead instructor who understands the needs of your organization and can apply real-world experience to your needs.


Our instructors bring knowledge and experience and present it in a way that ensures everyone leaves with a clear understanding of the material. This is accomplished by a hands-on approach that minimizes lecture and down-time. We'll spare you the "war stories" and make sure your people retain the information they came for.

Highly Trained

Our instructors are experts in their disciplines. Whether you are taking a basic CPR course or ACLS/PALS, you will be learning from someone with years of real-world experience in performing skills in the field. All instructors are certified with the American Heart Association and the American Safety and Health Institute.

A bit about our company...

In the beginning

EMS Education was started by Karen and David Craig in 1985.  We provided on-site CPR, FIrst Aid and advanced training to police departments and fire companies in the Montgomery County region.

The growing years

Over the years the needs of our customers grew to include advanced training, sales and service of equipment and consulting. We branched out from the public safety arena and included private businesses and industry in our portfolio.
Today, Karen Craig is the sole owner of EMS Education. We provide high-quality on-site training with the attention you expect from a small family business.

We are a local distributor for Cardiac Science, makers of the Powerheart G3 AED family, which we both sell, service and establish policy for. We provide consulting for clients that need guidance on policies and procedures. We use our experience and expertise to make sure each client is trained and prepared to act in an emergency.

Looking to the future

EMS Educational Services, Inc. has strived to meet the needs of our customers, while maintaining a "small family business" feel. As we branch out into blended learning, alternative healing and wellness initiatives, our core values will always revolve around providing high quality on-site training tailored to the needs of your organization.
