Academy Starts

Today, the Wake County EMS Division Recruit Academy started.  The 160 hour Recruit Academy covers a variety of topics from operational policies to cardiac arrest management.  New Recruits are put through a battery of test, including patient simulation exercises using a high-fidelity human patient simulator.

Upon successful  completion of the Recruit Academy, recruits will then begin phase two of their training called Field Training and Evaluation Program (FTEP).  A Field Training Officer (FTO) will be assigned to each recruit to ensure mastery of knowledge and skills.   The entire process takes eight months to complete.
