BEAUMONT — Acadian Ambulance – Acadian Ambulance and the National EMS Academy are kicking off their first round of the accelerated EMT class in Beaumont, Texas. The program will select individuals interested in earning their Emergency Medical Technician certification and pay them while they are in training. Upon successful completion, they will then serve as EMTs in the Beaumont area.
Compared to the traditional EMT program, which takes four months to complete, the accelerated program is an intense and complex seven-week course. Acceptance into this program is competitive, with only 30 seats available. Acadian will cover the fees and costs of the course. While in school, the student will earn $11/hour. Upon graduation and passing the EMT National Registry exam, the individual will begin earning EMT pay and will work as an Acadian EMT in the Beaumont area.
The last day to apply for the program is December 23, 2021, and the course will begin on January 10, 2022. The class will be held in the Beaumont area.
