The National EMS Academy, an Acadian company, has announced a new program designed to invest in the education and future of Acadian medics.
Under the tuition-refund program, paramedic students employed by Acadian who payroll deduct their tuition and fees will begin repaying tuition when the class ends, but half of it will be excused when they pass the National Registry exam. When the employee finishes paying off the balance, the entire amount will be refunded to the employee in a lump sum. When employees receive the refund, they will be required to sign a one-year commitment to remain with Acadian.
Acadian aims to provide this tuition reimbursement program to EMTs employed by Acadian and encourage them to further their careers and become paramedics.
