In partnership with Calhoun Community College, Limestone County is planning to offer the EMT program at the Limestone County Career Technical Center beginning in November. Classes will meet twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Classes will conclude in May.
Calhoun Community College will pay approximately $1,800 of the cost for each student. Students will be responsible for a small portion of the entire cost, approximately $200 to cover the cost of background check, drug screening, and online testing.
Students will need to meet dual enrollment requirements and have no history of attendance or discipline problems. Also, it is recommended that students be enrolled in no more than one AP course during the duration of this program as the EMT program is 12 hours of college credit.
Those interested in any type of public safety or medical field would be perfect candidates. Emphasizing the cost will certainly interest parents. We want to ensure that we have enough students for the program to make so our students can take advantage of this amazing opportunity while still in high school!
Any student interested needs to see Mrs. Rowe ASAP. A parent meeting is tentatively scheduled for Monday night, October 27th, at the CTC beginning at 6:00 p.m.
