Ivy Tech Offering Free EMT Job Training In Bedford To Eligible Hoosier Residents

(BLOOMINGTON) – Ivy Tech Community College is offering an EMT certification course in downtown Bedford at the new StoneGate Arts & Education Center, starting Tuesday night on Aug. 27. There is still time to sign-up for this one-course certification program that prepares graduates to sit for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians exam, which is required for employment as an EMT.

“EMT at Ivy Tech is a Next Level Jobs Indiana program, so this means that qualified students could take this course tuition-free and become prepared to go directly to work in this high-demand field,” said Rodney Taylor, MBA, EMT-P/PI, paramedic science program chair at Ivy Tech Bloomington. “Interested students still have time to apply to the college for free, sign up for the class, and complete it in only one semester. Ivy Tech’s Bedford location is also close to home for many in the Lawrence and Orange Co areas.”

Ivy Tech offers other one-course certifications through Next Level Jobs Indiana that can be completed in only eight weeks, such as Dementia Care and Nutrition and Wellness. In addition to EMT training, for only the cost of books and supplies, qualified applicants can earn certifications in high-demand job fields like automotive, LPN, medical assisting, accounting, bookkeeping, electrician, HVAC, welding, and IT.

Certificate training in high-demand fields counts toward Ivy Tech associate degrees, so students can earn some certifications in as little as eight weeks and then go on to work while completing their associate degree in that field.
