First ‘Earn to Learn’ Class Graduates in Kentucky

FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. – The first class of graduates from AMR Lifeguard’s “Earn to Learn” program are now qualified to be emergency medical professionals.

The program is unique because the program pays for people to become EMTs and pays for their schooling, WYMT-TV reports.

While there is a shortage of EMTs and paramedics across the country, AMR Lifeguard says this program is not a silver bullet and it’s not a quick fix.
