Marketing Description:

FEI is an international leader in crisis management services and regularly recruits trauma specialists to join our crisis responder network. Crisis responders participate in short-term contract work in response to mass casualty events such as natural disasters, terrorist attacks and aviation accidents.

To become part of the network, individuals must be trained by FEI and will be required to attend the Crisis Management Training. Those who are trained become eligible to earn up to 8 continuing education units (CEU's). Please note, there is an additional $15 application fee with Bellevue when applying for the CEU's.

Those actively deployed in support will be compensated an hourly rate ranging from $75-$90 per hour depending on the level of clinical care provided as requested by the customer.

In addition, we provide the option to work remotely through our Virtual Contact Center (VCC).

Those trained will have the ability to join the following roles:
