Limmer Creative, a publisher of electronic study and review products for EMS and allied health personnel, is pleased to announce the release of the first of several new smartphone and web-based applications geared to the paramedic student.
The first two apps in Limmer Creative’s topical Paramedic Review series are Paramedic Assessment Review and Paramedic Airway Review. Both of these apps will be released December 17, 2012. In January 2013, two additional apps will be released: Paramedic Special Populations Review and Paramedic Pharmacology Review. Additional apps in the series will be released throughout 2013.
While many apps help students prepare for the National Registry of EMTs examination (NREMT), the new apps are designed to assist students throughout the course—and as additional practice in problem areas prior to an examination.
“We recognize that a paramedic class is a serious educational undertaking,” says Daniel Limmer, Founder of Limmer Creative. “With an increasing number of college-based, nationally accredited programs, the demands on students have never been higher.”
Paramedic classes, which had once been primarily vocational training, are now degree-based. The Committee for Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) reports that more than 500 paramedic programs have become accredited in the United States. This surge is the result of a standard set by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians.
Coinciding with the trend in increasing educational demand is the prevalence of smartphone and tablet use by students—in and out of the classroom. Limmer Creative CEO Stephanie Limmer believes students are moving to more electronic products and apps. “Students automatically look to their smart phones and tablets for resources. It is our intent to provide the most relevant, focused and accurate products for this important market. Our new EMS apps place us squarely as market leaders in this space.”
Limmer Creative is a publishing company formed out of a passion for creativity and learning. Our mission is to help students pass the test using high-quality, clinically accurate, educationally sound apps written by leading national educators. Limmer Creative is based in Kennebunk, Maine.
