Jason C. Sargent, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P
Vice President, The Institute for Continuing Medical Education, Urbandale, IA

Mr. Sargent is originally from Kentucky, where he received his paramedic certificate in 1998.  While working as a Paramedic for more than sixteen years with experience in 911, ground critical care, air medical, and off shore oil rigs, he is also an experienced lecturer and has taught many local and regional lectures as well as taught paramedic classes for multiple organizations including the Houston (TX) Fire Department.  Jason received his Associates of Applied Science degree in Paramedicine in 2002 and his Bachelor of Science in Emergency Health Services in 2012 from the University Of Texas Health Science Center – San Antonio.  In January 2014, Jason and his business partner, James, decided to open The Institute for Continuing Medical Education because they became tired of costly classes, a progressive movement to computer based education, and the inability to get regular classes in short notice, so they decided to take matters into their own hands. Opening The Institute will bring a variety of continuing medical education opportunities to the Des Moines metro and surrounding areas. More importantly, for those last minute needs The Institute will have you covered with same day, one-on-one, and routinely scheduled classes. For the past 10 years these two have taught at all levels of pre-hospital and continuing medical education. With their experience as regionally and state level conferences presenters, college instructors, and past education/training officers, they know what it takes to be quality educators.  They take great pride in being knowledgeable, dynamic, and up to date with current trends and research in their field.

Relevant to the content of this educational activity, the speakers indicated they have no relevant financial relationships to disclose.
