About the Program
Reid Health is a state-certified emergency medical services training institution and is offering classes for those who would like to become a certified emergency medical responder (EMR), emergency medical technician (EMT), or paramedic. Classes are held either on the main Reid Health campus in Richmond or at Reid's Connersville campus.
Our next course will be EMT training at our Connersville campus. Upon completion, graduates will earn a certificate that will qualify them to work as an EMT in any state.
"Job placement won't likely be a problem for those folks. EMTs are in high demand." -- Brent Meadows, Emergency Medical Services Educator at Reid Health.
