We are excited to announce that our members Evan and Aja have successfully completed the demanding coursework to become Emergency Medical Technicians. Over the span of four months, the two completed nearly 150 hours of training, including classroom sessions, practical hands-on training, and ten hours of hospital rotations.
Graduation from Loudoun County’s ‘EMT School’ was July 10, 2014, where all graduates were presented with their certificates.
Congrats, Aja and Evan, and we are so glad that you are part of our HVRS family!
