Student Testimonials


I spent 15 years as a firefighter and paramedic, and I’ve used MAB skills when patients are assaultive…

There’s nothing more important than keeping our patients, our crew, and ourselves safe. When the situation with a patient becomes dangerous, you need to know how to de-escalate it for everyone’s sake. I’ve been attacked by patients in the past, and I relied on my MAB training to know what to do. The tools you learn in MAB can help you recognize patient triggers, prevent escalation, and — most importantly — protect yourself and those around you.
