911 e-Learning Solutions, LLC was founded by (Mr.) Kelly Kirk in 2010. 911 e-Learning specializes in designing, developing, and teaching e-Learning initial and continuing education courses in fully online and hybrid formats.
911 e-Learning Solutions isn’t simply an industry leader in online education.
We are an innovation in a field inundated with experts, trailblazing a better
approach to e-Learning development for healthcare and public safety. We don’t
just develop Healthcare and Public Safety education: We are Public Safety and Healthcare. We can create more effective courses at more affordable price points because of our immersion in the Emergency Services and Healthcare fields.
Here’s what makes 911 e-Learning Solutions the perfect fit…
We are your Subject Matter Experts.
We are not only an e-Learning design and development company, we are Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who pride ourselves on having the background and experience in EMS, Fire, Rescue, and Healthcare to build better courses, faster. Because our Subject Matter Experts are also professional designers, developers, videographers, and photographers, we can produce e-Learning in a fraction of the time by cutting out the back-and-forth communications between SMEs and other team members.
Avoid the delays and frustrations of relying on SMEs with limited time and resources to devote to content creation. Our team can produce content for your course with their single focus on the project from storyboard draft to final script. Streamline the process – and your budget – with the integrated solution to course development that makes 911 e-Learning Solutions unique.
We know healthcare and public safety.
We are educators but we are also paramedics, firefighters, EMTs, physicians and nurses. We are intimately familiar with your audience: the learners, the material, and the unique educational fingerprint of Emergency Services providers. Our design team has over 30 years of collective experience designing e-Learning courses for Emergency Services.
We have a proven track record with e-Learning for large and small organizations.
Our solutions and services are scalable no matter what the magnitude of your project. From the smallest rural ambulance services to multi-national publishers, 911 e-Learning Solutions has the experience you are looking for and a reputation you can trust. Our clients include non-profits, state and local governmental sectors, large corporations, and everything in between.
We have a versatile, multi-faceted team to meet every project need.
911 e-Learning Solutions does it all, with a talented team of writers, editors, graphics specialists, media producers (photography and videography) and voice narrators to support our expert instructional designers and developers. We can even offer access to EMS/Fire/Hospital equipment, actors, and scenes as necessary. There’s no need to contract outside services because we can provide it in-house – saving dollars and hours every time.
After your course is created, we can take the next steps with you, helping you build a Learning Management System (LMS) on a variety of leading platforms to administer your course efficiently. If you’re looking for end-user technical support for the course or the LMS, we can help with that too.
We work with you, not just for you.
Collaboration is key to success, and we view each project as a partnership with the client. Your successes are our successes, so we take the time to listen to your goals, understand the project from big picture to tiny details, and envision a solution that meets all those needs. We pride ourselves on being responsive, easy to work with, and available for consultations as needed, on your schedule. Our holistic method
combined with a wealth of in-house resources equates to a quick turnaround time and the ability to meet the tightest deadlines.
In short: Our unique comprehensive approach saves you time, money and headache by guiding you seamlessly through each step of the e-Learning course development process
