All seven have successfully completed training and will be scheduled to take the National EMS Certification exam. Fairfield County WIOA will assist each participant with updating resumes, job applications and interviewing techniques.

Additionally, Fairfield County WIOA has partnered with Fairfield County Emergency Medical Services who assisted with clinicals and a 20 week paid youth internship.

Upon earning their National EMS Certification. Fairfield County Emergency Medical Services will be able to extend full-time employment. Fairfield County WIOA is excited to be part of the journey, and we wish each and every one continued success!
