Students sought for EMT class

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Putnam County Operation Life, in conjunction with Area 30 Career Center, is currently accepting applications for a fall Emergency Medical Technician class. The course will begin on Aug. 12 and go through Dec. 11. Class sessions will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 10 p.m. and two Saturday sessions. This course meets the minimum state guidelines for certification at the EMT-basic level and teaches basic life support techniques.

The cost for the course is $600, and there is a payment plan option. Students must be healthcare provider certified in CPR, and a class will be offered before the EMT class begins.

Applications and further information can be obtained at Operation Life, 513 S. Bloomington St., Greencastle, or by calling 653-3600.

Applications are due by Aug. 5.
