About Emergency Training Associates

Emergency Training Associates was formed in 1998 after being invited to teach American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support courses with a great group of fellow medical professionals.  As a paramedic firefighter I was able to add valuable experience and perspectives and we all learned from each other.  This was not a new thing as my teaching began in my teens as a photography instructor at the store where I worked then for the school system as an adult learning educator.  When I completed several years in paramedic practice I continued my professional growth by completing the very challenging Instructor/Coordinator program and was off teaching initial and continuing education courses both on my own and for a large hospital group.

As a shooter from Cub Scout age, it was natural to handle firearms and when the opportunity to teach the skills came along it was added to our line up of classes.  We now provide courses that save the lives of others and protects yourself, family, friends and sometimes strangers.  As a professional eduction service we give you EDUTAINMENT by making the learning process fun and challenging. You get realistic, up-to-date and accurate information that is appropriate and usefull in everday life.  Even the things I learned in prison ( as a paid contractor ).  Welcome to ETA!

We continue to train so we are up to date on the best practices and legal policies.  As a Massad Ayoob Group Deadly Force Instructor and MAG - 40 certified participant you will get the inside scoop afforded by the elite eductors in America.  We don't shoot on the range; we use the range to train you to shoot to defend yourself, family, friends and community by using real life situations to prepare you for life.  Come join us to learn with the best in the world.

Other Policy

ETA dress code

We ask that you wear typical casual clothing for our courses.  Untucked shirts, vests and light jackets are great for concealed firearms courses.  Pants should fit well at the waist; no baggy or saggy pants are allowed as this is not conducive to carrying a firearm and poses a safety hazard.  A sturdy belt is required for drawing firearms and dress style belts are not recommended unless they are purposely designed for firearm use.

Clothing should not allow bare skin or underclothing to be visible at any time.  Dress should be layered for outdoor activities and something you don’t mind getting dirty.  Footwear should also be of outdoor type and support your feet well.

Discriminatory, inflammatory, gang-associated or otherwise offensive dress is not allowed at any course we provide and students will be asked to leave and rescheduled for another class.

Hearing and eye protection is required.  Eye protection may be clear or yellow tint.  No dark tint.
