EMS Pathways Academy Student Internship 2020

The EMS Pathways Academy internship is an 12-week basic Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification course. Getting your EMT certification can open the door to many career paths. Graduates of our program have become Minneapolis firefighters, dispatchers, paramedics and more. Career opportunities for qualified EMTs are broad and the field continues to grow.

It's important we fill these positions with people that represent our diverse communities. To this end the Minneapolis Fire Department hosts this training to remove barriers to achieving the EMT certification. 85% of graduates were people of color and 48% were female.


Apply for the program from February 17, 2020 through Monday, March 2, 2020 before 11:59 PM. Apply at under Open Jobs - Internships.
