Our current student dashboard is the hub of our student activity. This is where individuals come to log in to their current registered courses which are conveniently located and easily accessible.

Students will also find a host of online academic support. From tips to utilizing online learning to discussion forum best practices, information on scholarships, and time management techniques, we have you covered. This is what an online institution should provide to its students.
Here you will simply find your course materials and activities on the main page of your classroom. No need to go searching. And accessing your lessons is as easy as point and click. Each resource will open, and you will be treated to self-explanatory navigation and directions on how to participate in or complete each learning activity.
Each one of our courses is designed with the latest educational methodology techniques to help ensure a high level of student learning and the ability to complete course objectives. Our lessons are created to help our learners move newly discovered information from short term memory to long term or working memory so that it is not just memorized facts. Our formative and summative assessments are constructed to challenge our students and encourage them to use the available resources at their disposal.
Even though most of our programs are taught online there are those full certification programs that do require hands on skills lab evaluations buy instructors and lab technicians. As you can see our students can not be afraid to roll up their sleeves and get into the action. All of our practical lab sessions are performed with student safety in mind. We utilize small group settings and ambulance clinical ride times to meet all practical objectives.
The faculty at Great Brook Academy are second to none. Each one has been selected for their years of experience and wealth of knowledge that they have in their chosen fields.
There are instructors who work with the program coordinator. Their responsibility is to teach and present the course material to our students. This may be done in a multitude of ways to include online lectures, review activities, or face to face instruction in some cases. Some of our instructors perform as lab technicians. Their focus is to work with our students to perfect their hands-on capabilities and help them to perform with competency. These skills may be performed during scheduled one on one sessions with the instructor or lab tech or as part of the clinical experience if the course of instruction includes it.
All our full certification programs and EMS continuing education classes are approved by the NH Bureau of Emergency Medical Services. All of our first aid and CPR courses are credentialed, and certification is provided by the Emergency Care and Safety Institute.
We don’t have to go to all of this trouble to be the best in the industry, but we do it anyway. We do it because we know you have expectations of the school that will be the provider of your education and we do it because we have a reputation to uphold. We have been in business since 1995 and have never waivered from our commitment to our students and alumni to strive to be the best.
