Colt Whitman EMTP, NRP FP-C CCP-C AOLS, NAEMT faculty, AHA BLS/ACLS/PALS Instructor, GEMS, PHTLS, AMLS, & EPC affiliate faculty
My name is Colt Whitman, I am one of the lead instructors at Emergency Medicine Academy. I was born and raised in Bishop, California. I went to the University of Southern California on a wrestling scholarship but left after my freshman year to chase my goals of becoming a Paramedic.
After completing my Associates Degree in Paramedicine in Idaho, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia. I worked as a Paramedic and Field Training Officer for Grady EMS for 10 years before leaving to become a Flight Paramedic for AirEvac Lifeteam, stationed in Georgia. I was offered a position with Life Flight Network in July of 2016. My family and I relocated to Boise and I am working full time as a Flight Paramedic.
I have taught EMT and Paramedic courses for the past 8 years and have certifications as a Flight Paramedic-Certified and Critical Care Paramedic-Certified. I hold instructor certifications in advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, pre-hospital trauma life support, advanced medical life support, neonatal resuscitation program, and advanced obstetric life support.
I love teaching and getting to know my students as they grow into healthcare providers. I try to make learning fun and use my years of experience to guide my students; giving them the tools they will need to be successful in school and in their new careers.
I am so glad to call the Treasure Valley my home. I enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and white water rafting with my wife and our two year old son in my free time.
