EMS Education Opportunities

The following classes will be taught at New River Community and Technical College Lee Street Campus for recertification.  These re-cert classes are free and no charge as part of our commitment to EMS education and support of area squads.  Hopefully these classes help both paid and volunteer staff get continuing education in a quick and easy couple of days.  These classes will be logged in CIS.  Recipients will have credit applied for recertification upon completion.   Those wishing to have the re-certification classes just need to show up to the Lee Street Campus at the times as indicated below.
