December 2018 Newsletter

Hello Everyone,

I think the older I get the faster the years goes by, I’m not sure where 2018 went! Our office will be closed for Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

We pray, as the holidays approach, they find everyone happy and healthy and full of love and family during this holiday season and throughout the coming year. We are thankful for your continued support this last year. It has been a privilege to serve and be a part of so many of your lives and hope we have had a positive influence.

I want to say a big thank you to all of our office staff, lab assistants, and Instructors. They work diligently to instill passion and knowledge into our students. As we often say, they are the ones creating every day heroes, every day. THANK YOU!

We have had some wonderful success stories this year. We are extremely proud of all our students and graduates, as they work hard to attain their goals. Many of our graduates have been hired by our valley fire departments and private ambulance agencies. We have many of our students getting field experience by working for special event agencies such as Nevada ProMedics, Guardian Elite Medical Services, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Medicwest/AMR & Community Ambulance.

As a training provider for Workforce Connections, we have many student attending courses that may have otherwise been unable to obtain the training to reach their goals. Through this state, grant funded program and the agencies that support it, they can send these students through courses and help them seize the opportunity to better themselves. You can get more information by going to our website at www.emstrainingcenter.com, click on the Workforce Connections logo on the right-hand side of our homepage.
