Training Opportunities

In 2013, the Training Center of the Marshall Area Fire Fighters Ambulance Authority became recognized by its parent American Heart Association Training Center at Kellogg Community College as an AHA Training Site. As an official AHA Training Site, the MAFFAA Training Center has the ability to provide American Heart Association classes in First Aid, CPR / AED, and Advanced Emergency Cardiac Care, serving the general public and healthcare providers in and around the MAFFAA service area.

There is a minimum 2-week advance notice required for scheduling any AHA course, per local AHA Training Center guidelines.

All AHA courses require at least four participants in order to run. When fewer than four students have signed up, the class will need to be rescheduled, and the students will be notified of the change in advance. 

The AHA course schedule plan for September 2017 is as follows:

September 5 - BLS for HealthCare Provider CPR - course full - 1300 to 1700

September 6 - ACLS Update (Oaklawn personnel) - course full - 0800 to 1700

September 13 - PALS Update (Oaklawn and MAFFAA personnel) - course full - 0800 - 1700

September 20 - ACLS Update (Oaklawn personnel) - course full - 0800 to 1700

Additional course opportunities in September will be limited while we assist with the KCC Paramedic Program.

Oaklawn personnel interested in signing up for AHA course offerings should contact the Education Services Coordinator at Oaklawn Hospital to indicate interest or need for a particular course. The Oaklawn Education Services Coordinator will facilitate course setup and registration with MAFFAA for most Oaklawn-affiliated employees.

Other individuals or agencies wishing to schedule classes may contact the MAFFAA Training Center directly by calling (269) 789-6174.

NOTE: MAFFAA is unable to complete the Skills Testing portions (Parts 2 and 3) of the advanced provider courses (ACLS, PALS) at this time.

During the academic calendar year, MAFFAA hosts continuing education units (CEU's) sponsored by the EMS Education Department at Kellogg Community College. CE courses held at MAFFAA are intended for individuals licensed as an Emergency Medical Services provider within the State of Michigan, as regulated by the Michigan Department of Community Health. These classes are managed and taught by MAFFAA personnel affiliated with Kellogg Community College as EMS Education Department faculty members, and generally cover the topics required by the MDCH for renewing a current, valid EMS license. Please see the link below for the current EMS education schedule. At this time, these CE offerings are still offered at no charge to EMS personnel, and are open to all licensed EMS providers (some classes may be limited in size due to equipment or facility limitations).

The next CE class hosted by MAFFAA will be after the beginning of the Fall semester:

Date: September 11, 2017 

Topics: Pediatrics (2 Lecture, 1 Practical)

Location: Marshall Public Services Building (P.S.B.) 900 South Marshall St., Marshall, MI
