3. Our Founder


The Founder of the program, Kip Teitsort, having experience as a paramedic, police officer, and martial artist created EVE from purely an EMS/Healthcare origin- not some existing corrections/psych/law enforcement (continuum based) class that was modified to be an EMS/Fire/Healthcare class.  

In the years since the creation of DT4EMS, many of our now certified instructors and instructor-trainers bring decades of law enforcement, military and martial arts experience into our programs. Our instructors also have vast experience with years of Fire, EMS and hospital based patient care. This is how we know we are providing superior training for your staff. Continue to Kip’s Bio
