The EMS Pathways Academy is a partnership between the Minneapolis Fire Department, the Minneapolis Foundation, Hennepin County Medical Center, Project for Pride and Living, and other healthcare organizations. The goal is to provide a pipeline of diverse candidates for the Minneapolis Fire Department and the emergency medical workforce of our community. This student internship career pathway will target low-income, minority, male and female young adults of Minneapolis between the ages of 18-30, to be eligible to receive free Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training and certification. All are welcome to apply. Becoming a certified Emergency Medical Technician opens the door to many career paths. This is a rapidly expanding field and as more jobs for EMTs are created, demand will increase for qualified candidates that reflect the multilingual and culturally diverse communities we serve. Upon completion of the EMS Pathways Academy, graduates are eligible to earn National EMT certification, college credits, and job competency training. Note: This program is in place for applicants who do not currently have an EMT certification. Applicants will not qualify for the program if they have a current EMT certification. There is no cost to apply. Participants are paid $14.93 hourly.

Program Requirements include:

Once it is determined that you meet the minimum qualifications, you will be asked to schedule your reading assessment and math assessment and upon passing the assessment, you will be invited to participate in a screening session.
