Camden County College is offering a new program for those interested in filing the need for qualified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) in our area. Presented in collaboration with Cooper University Health Care, the Camden County Board of Commissioners, Camden County One Stop, Camden County Workforce Development Board, and Hopeworks, the low-cost, comprehensive training prepares participants for an entry level career in emergency medical services.
“This new EMT program reinforces Camden County College’s ongoing commitment to becoming a regional leader in workforce development and community engagement through strategic partnerships with business, industry, and premier institutions to deliver a career-ready education to students,” said Dr. Lovell Pugh-Bassett, President of Camden County College.
The inaugural class will take place at the Camden City Campus. After completing the necessary coursework to obtain their EMT certification, graduates of the program will be given the opportunity to participate in a 120-hour clinical tour with Cooper EMS. Admission to the EMT program will be on a rolling basis. Applicants who display financial need may be eligible for tuition-free training.
“It is exciting to launch another great program where we offer career opportunities to community members, specifically careers with great benefits and opportunity for advancement,” says John Steiner, Dean of Math, Science and Health Careers at Camden County College. “It has been a team effort to create this class curriculum and we look forward to creating additional career pathways for students.”
