Pre-EMS (Emergency Medical Services)
Pre-EMS Academy is an EMT preparatory course offered by the Saint Paul EMS Academy.
The Saint Paul EMS Academy is an Emergency Medical Technician certification program that trains low-income youth (18-24 years) of Saint Paul to become EMTs. We provide all materials free of charge, free tuition, wrap-around supports, and an hourly wage for participants. The EMT curriculum is rigorous, so we have launched Pre-EMS to build the foundation needed for success in the EMS Academy.
Pre-EMS is an Adult Basic Education (ABE) course taught by Saint Paul Public Schools Hubbs Center. Pre-EMS is open to any individual interested in a career in EMS. Participants study the anatomy and physiology of the human body, develop vocabulary common in the EMS field, and improve reading and test-taking skills.
Class time totals 60 hours - 6 hours per week (M,W,F 8:30-10:30 AM) for 10 weeks (April 2 - June 8, 2012). Class will be taught at Station 51 in St Paul (296 West 7th St).
After completing Pre-EMS, graduates can enroll into the Summer 2012 EMS Academy, which runs June 18 - August 24, 2012.
There will not be class on Holidays.
