The Maricopa County Community College District has announced a partnership with American Medical Response to expand its Earn While You Learn program and establish a paramedicine employee sponsorship.
The expansion is intended to meet the high-demand workforce needs while offering quality training and flexible scheduling, according to a release.
Earn While You Learn bridges the gap between employees interested in career advancement opportunities and employers seeking a highly qualified, well-trained workforce, MCCCD Chancellor Steven R. Gonzales said.
The partnership includes opportunities for AMR and Global Medical Response employees to continue their education in paramedicine or other healthcare or non-healthcare programs.
MCCCD offers six EMTs and four paramedicine programs regionally placed throughout Maricopa County.
“Through the partnership, MCCCD will offer these programs to AMR and GMR employees at four colleges in the city centers, East and West Valley. The rolling schedules allow employees to obtain training that is convenient for them,” the release stated.
