    Pros

    They pay for you to go to class. They have accelerated programs for both EMT’s and Paramedics. Six weeks for accelerated EMT but you HAVE to be focused. You are learning a semesters worth of information in only six weeks.

    Cons

    Can’t really think of any. They do take care of their employees.

    Workers owned. Decent benefits. Easy to get hired
