Some high school students are being guaranteed EMT jobs in Kentucky to help fill a void of local workers, WDRB-TV reports.

Students who complete the program are guaranteed jobs with Bullitt County EMS, according to Superintendent Jesse Bacon.

“They’ll actually be on ambulance rides and get the practical, hands-on experience that goes along with being a certified EMT,” he said.


Twenty-three seniors are currently taking classes at Jefferson Community and Technical College. Some have already planned to become EMTs. Others are planning to study medicine in college.

The district hopes to have more classes like this in the future.
