EmergyCare's EMT Academy- Next Class TBD
The goal of this program is to recruit a maximum of 15 individuals from EmergyCare's service area to enroll and make them job-ready upon completion of the program. The program is unique in that it will offer part-time employment at EmergyCare and EMT training simultaneously. The Academy will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The candidates who meet the qualifications through the application process will be contacted for an interview and will also take an independently evaluated pre-employment assessment. The top qualified candidates will be accepted into the program.
"Emergency Medical Services is the cornerstone of public safety. EMS providers are challenged with saving lives in a fluid environment, dealing with various acute situations ranging from heart attacks to traumatic injuries. It's imperative that we recruit individuals who have the passion and commitment to care for people. A program such as EmergyCare's EMT Academy provides a career path for those individuals who have the drive to help others." - Dave Basnak, President and Executive Director of EmergyCare
