Interested in Emergency Services?
Emergency Medical Responder Training is usually the initial training opportunity for volunteers and those who are interested in future jobs in Emergency Services. Volunteer Emergency Medical Responders are desperately needed in rural communities to assist those in need until ambulance service is available.
EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) offers a “laddered” opportunity to acquire skills in Emergency Services. Persons who have completed their initial EMT-B and EMT-I or EMT training have several opportunities for CEHs to maintain their professional certifications.
Volunteer firefighters can attend the 60-hour Firefighter I and the 32-hour Firefighter II class offered several times a year at different area fire departments. Vital ongoing training for all firefighters is part of IVCE's annual curriculum (including Pipeline Emergencies, Hazmat Awareness,
Operations, Search and Rescue, Command Spanish).
Specialized Law Enforcement
classes are available upon request for law enforcement personnel. Regularly scheduled classes for this group include CPR, first aid, and bloodborne pathogens training.
Occupational Spanish for Emergency
is available as an online course and as an in-person course. Specialized Spanish courses are taught for EMS, firefighters, and/or law enforcement personnel, and these courses are available onsite (if enrollment is adequate) or at IVCE with combined departments generating adequate enrollment, or as online courses.
