HONOLULU — Medics assigned to the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, partnered with Kapiolani Community College in August, for the 1st phase of the 25th CAB’s Paramedic Home Station Training Program. 

The program, still in production, will allow 25th CAB medics, to train, earn and maintain paramedic certification that is required to qualify as an Army flight medic.

We are doing this to create a standards-based home station paramedic training program that supports the requirements set forth by Army EMS and our civilian counterparts” explained Master Sgt. Gene Belis, brigade senior medical noncommissioned officer.
Currently, medics need to recertify several licenses within three years to maintain their credentials. According to Maj. Alan Wu, the 25th CAB flight surgeon, with this program the CAB is working to recertify all medics every two years in order to keep them ahead of the curve.
