Our Mission

Paramedical Personnel of Maryland’s primary mission is to save lives! 

We accomplish this by providing high quality safety training for the medical professional and the general public, training excellent instructors, and by providing the necessary equipment and supplies to facilitate instructor efforts.

Paramedical Personnel of Maryland (PPM) is the largest private safety-training center in the state of Maryland. The owner, August J. Becker III, has been teaching CPR with the American Heart Association for over 42 years. When the American Heart Association introduced the training centers concept Mr. Becker started Paramedical Personnel of Maryland. PPM was incorporated in June 1990. During the twenty seven plus years in business PPM has gone from a small company to over 500 plus active instructors located throughout the USA and Africa. 

PPM teaches over 40,000 students each year! Our instructors train for the American Heart Association, National Safety Council, American Safety and Health Institute. 

In 2005 PPM started a full service storefront providing equipment for CPR/First Aid Instructors as well as uniforms and emergency equipment for fire departments. Recently added our Personalized Apparel Division and a full-service Signs & Graphics Division.
