March 20, 2024 | 14:00 ET | Free to AAA Members
With the high cost to initial EMT programs, and the supply of new EMT students as compared to the national demand, creative programs such as recruit classes not only help to increase the number of new EMS providers available, but also provide a critical, and much needed bridge into extending the field of EMS into our urban settings. We will discuss how to not only setup a recruit program, but also work with key civic organizations to drive the growth of diversity in the workforce.
