Setting the Industry Standard for Leadership Development Training

Missouri Ambulance Association Member developing leadership training and setting industry standard for MAA in the Missouri State area

The Missouri Ambulance Association is integral in advancing the knowledge of EMS leadership through ongoing training sessions and seminars. MAA bridges the knowledge gap between a subordinate role and a leadership-level position; virtual or in-person training sessions and classes provide the necessary skills to manage a crew of first responders.

In many rural or small communities, EMS leaders need more training or guidance when they step into their new supervisory role. Some new Chiefs are promoted to their role after less than a year of service as an EMT or paramedic. MAA identified the need for cohesive and consistent training for new Chiefs and other top-level roles at Districts and ambulance providers across the state; the Association offers the most comprehensive training and development seminars specifically designed for Missouri EMS leadership.
