Training Our Future
Jefferson County EMS Training Center, in collaboration with Jefferson County EMS, will be hosting an Basic-Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-B) course. The Basic EMT course will begin in January. Classes will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 pm until 10 pm. Interested candidates should hold a current BLS certification, be at least 18 years of age. Have a valid TN Drivers License. Application packets can be found at www.jeffersoncountyemstc.com. Application packets include a lot of information and instructions, so please read the packet carefully and complete all documents as required. Completed application packets, including provided Medical Statements and Vaccination Records, should be returned in person to Rodney Satterfield at Jefferson County EMS, 581 W. Old AJ Hwy, New Market, TN 37820 no later than Dec 1, 2023 at 4 pm. Once applications are processed, candidates will be required to take a written pre-test and participate in an advisory board interview, as well as pass a drug screen and background check. Interviews will be held on a date to be announced at the JCEMS address listed above and times will be scheduled once the applications are reviewed. Please make arrangements now to be available to attend the interview session, as it is mandatory for admission into the program. While we are excited to offer this course, we encourage each candidate who is eligible for/currently receiving educational financial aid, or those who are seeking college credit, to contact the college closest to you with an EMS educational program for assistance. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Rodney Satterfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 865-471-9001.
