NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. — To help combat the nationwide shortage of EMTs, Mobile Life Support Service is offering a 12-week paid EMT training academy.
Participants in the cost-free, three-month academy will be considered full-time employees, complete with benefits available the first day of class, with health insurance after 60 days. Students will spend three days a week in the classroom, and two days in the field interning with current Mobile Life EMTs, for a total of 40-hour work weeks. Uniforms, textbooks and computers will all be provided.
“This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to enter the emergency services field, whether you spend a lifetime in EMS, or you’re simply taking the first step in your career path,” Mobile Life President and CEO Scott Woebse said. “The skills necessary to administer life-saving care are invaluable, and this academy offers individuals a chance to truly make a difference in their communities.”
Academy graduates who receive NYS certification will be given an immediate wage increase and be eligible for additional company benefits.
