CHARLOTTE — The next round of applications for a local EMT program at Central Piedmont Community College has officially opened.
The program, funded by the county, CPCC, and MEDIC, provides hands-on training. It also pays for the EMT course, books, and uniforms.
Students also got paid $17 an hour and upon completion must work for MEDIC for at least one year.
So far, two classes have already graduated, creating 21 new employees for MEDIC.
City leaders said the program was created to help with MEDIC’s staffing shortage.
