About Us

PMCST was created by Amanda Gehringer in December of 2014 with the goal to change the way training is done in our area. Emergency training does not need to be led by monotone and boring Instructors. If you’re required to be certified for your organization or if you want to learn on your own for personal preparedness, there is no better way than hands-on training mixed with practical experience and some laughs. You should not have to feel the need to keep checking your watch waiting for the minutes to pass. Emergency training can absolutely be as enjoyable as it is important.
