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.

Academy graduates who receive NYS certification will be given an immediate wage increase and be eligible for additional company benefits.
