MMR and MI Works! Inaugural EMT Academy Completed
MMR’s first academy style EMT course is now complete. In a unique collaboration with Great Lakes Bay Region MI Works!, MMR created the academy style course in order to fast track EMTs through initial training. These “Probationary EMTs” are now in the process of completing their National Registry exams in order to obtain a license to practice in the State of Michigan. Once officially licensed, our new EMTs will begin working shifts on the ambulance as they transition into the April 2017 Paramedic course. MMR, along with most other EMS agencies in Michigan and across the nation are experiencing a critical shortage of EMS personnel. In order to provide adequate staff for our communities, MMR is taking a unique and proactive approach to keeping training programs filled students who wish to pursue long term careers in EMS. We are proud of this inaugural class an congratulate them on a job well done!
