PDCCC’s first Intermediate EMT class began Tuesday, October 20th with Mr. Gerald Griffith as the lead instructor. We are excited to be offering this program here at PDCCC. This program prepares students to become Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) in the Commonwealth of Virginia. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for EMTs and paramedics is expected to grow 23 percent from 2012 to 2022. Most EMTs work full time and likely do shift work that includes weekends and holidays. They may work for private ambulance services, fire departments, hospitals or other rescue services. The average salary for an EMT is a little more than $31,000. Good Luck and welcome aboard!
