On April 29th, 2919, Virginia Beach EMS Basic Life Support Academy Class 30 held their graduation ceremony at the Virginia Beach Law Enforcement Training Academy.
Twenty nine new EMT students under the direction of VA Beach EMS Instruction Supervisor Eric DeForest, successfully completed the 16 week of emergency medical pre-hospital care course.
Before a full house of family members and fellow EMS volunteers, the new emergency medical prehospital care providers took the EMT Provider Oath, which was followed by an evening of friends-family congratulations and a lot of photos.
Did you know that EMT training is free and offered as a combination of online instructions and evening workshops when you join the Volunteer Rescue Squads of VA Beach?
Many volunteers find that the skills and experience gained with Virginia Beach EMS often leads to job opportunities and opens doors to higher education opportunities in the medical field.
