American Medical Response Accepting Applications for Earn While You Learn in Dayton



Program will Boost Ohio Economy while Addressing National EMT Shortage 

As communities across the nation continue to navigate the COVID-19 Delta variant and businesses continue to recover from the impacts of a global pandemic, American Medical Response (AMR) Dayton is ramping up its hiring efforts to help Ohio job-seekers get back to work and pursue rewarding career opportunities in Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

The program is an exciting opportunity for Dayton residents who want to begin a rewarding career in EMS. Applicants will embark on a six-week course, in which they will learn the tools of the EMT trade while being paid. To qualify, an applicant must be 18 years of age or older, have a high school diploma or GED, have all required immunizations, and successfully pass background checks. 

Dr. Randy Marriott, Chair of the Emergency Management Committee for Miami Valley Hospital, Medical Director for the Premier Health Center of Excellence. and Chief Medical Officer for AMR Dayton started his career in emergency medicine as an EMT. 

“Almost 40 years ago, the opportunity to become an EMT launched my career in medicine and it is a path I have never regretted taking,” said Dr. Marriott.  “Having that foundation was critical for advancement and it gave me a broad, basic education in medicine. Being an EMT will always leave you with a feeling of respect and that is a perk that not many careers have. Because at the end of the day, you never cease to be a physician, an EMT, or a paramedic; it becomes part of your identity.”

Since launching the Earn While You Learn program in 2018, AMR has graduated more than 500 EMS professionals. The program has made a career in emergency medical services more accessible, ensuring that a candidate is financially stable while training.
The Earn While You Learn program received a national honor from the American Ambulance Association in the best Employee Programs Category. Similar programs have also been launched in Alabama, Connecticut, Indiana, Illinois, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, New York, and Tennessee. 

Interested candidates should apply by September 27, 2021 on the AMR website. Classes begin November 1, 2021. To apply, just head to the AMR website and sign up at www.amr.net/careers
