CORDELE, GA (WALB) - High school students in Crisp County can now start EMT training while they are in school.
It's part of a new program with South Georgia Technical College.
Nine students from Crisp County High School take a trip to the Cordele campus every day.
By the time they graduate they will have completed a full EMT basic course.
As early as June those students can take the test and start working.
"This is basically the stepping stone into the bigger picture of paramedicine. We get them and in and in six months of training in basically a part-time program it works well for them," said EMT instructor Matt Hunt.
Hunt says he is looking forward to bringing in more students in the future.
