PITTSFIELD — Northern Light Sebasticook Valley Hospital plans to offer a six-week emergency medical technician certification course in partnership with Kennebec Valley Community College from Oct. 11 to Nov. 19 at the hospital, 447 N. Main St.

Classes will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. Remaining weekdays will allow for job shadow time to equal 40 hours between class and job shadowing.

The cost is paid for by Northern Light Health.

Eligible candidates will work alongside EMS providers. Candidates will be brought into the program as a Work to Grow employee and be paid 40 hours a week, which will compensate them for class and job shadow time. Upon successful completion of the program and obtaining a Maine EMT license, candidates will be promoted to EMT with a pay increase.

Candidates would be required to sign a two-year contract with Northern Light Health.
