The program will be open to the public for a one-time cost of $475, which includes all materials. It will consist of approximately 140 hours of classroom didactic and hands-on training as well as clinical rotations with local ambulance providers and hospital emergency rooms providing actual patient care.
Successful completion of the program will prepare the candidate for state certification testing as an EMT.
Possible work fields include volunteer and career fire departments, rescue squads, and ambulances; emergency rooms and other hospital departments; and non-traditional settings such as doctor's offices, clinics, and athletic teams.
Classes start Dec. 7 and will take place Monday and Wednesday nights from 6-10 p.m. at the Seelyville Volunteer Fire Department. Prospective students should contact Nick Montelauro, Primary Instructor, at (812) 460-0730, extension 125, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
