Medic First Aid International, Inc. 

EMP America, Inc. and EMP International, Inc., founded in 1978, had grown into a profitable family business before revenue stagnated following September 11, 2001 and the recession that followed. The company was fighting industry commoditization and increasing competition and the owners did not have a growth plan or exit strategy. Although the market offered substantial growth opportunity, the business was not sufficiently prepared to accommodate an exit for the founders who were ready to retire after more than twenty years.

Today we are your trusted national resource for online and DVD-based caregiver and staff training. Discover compliance and certification programs designed to build your business success.
