How to Pick the Perfect EMT Class Lab Partner

Who you work with during your EMT class will play a role in the information you gain throughout your courses. Choose a lab partner that will help you to succeed and with whom you can effectively work with throughout the class. Look for the following qualities when choosing a lab partner to jointly succeed together:

  • Leadership
  • Motivated
  • Participates
  • Intelligent
  • Well spoken
  • Professional
  • Open minded
  • Organized
  • Prepared

Even though you may already know some of the participants in your class, consider choosing someone who you don’t know as well. This may help you focus more on your learning and less on feeding and caring for a friendship. Remember, your partner’s role is to aid you in learning EMS skills and knowledge.

Return the favor by helping your partner improve their skills and abilities.
