Through a partnership with South Arkansas Community College, MEMS is able to offer college credit at our headquarters for EMT training. MEMS EMT-B training, otherwise known as Rookie School, is usually held twice each year as staffing needs occur. Classes and deadlines to apply will be announced prior to the anticipated start date.

College Placement Test
The sooner you apply, the quicker you can get scheduled to take your college placement test for admission to South Arkansas Community College. MEMS pays for all fees associated.
Physical Agility Test
Candidates must demonstrate a minimum fitness level prior to being hired. Physical fitness will be measured by participating in five job-related exercises.
For approximately 8 weeks, you will attend in class instruction, full-time, Monday thru Friday, 7AM - 4PM. You will also be paid a salary and receive benefits during this time.
Put your skills to use and prove that you can do the job. This is required by MEMS for graduation.
NREMT, also know as National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians, is required by the State of Arkansas to work as an EMT and Paramedic. The exam may seem daunting, but the instructors at MEMS will give you everything you need to pass.
You made it to graduation! This is where you will be presented with your diploma and EMT patch.
