December 02, 2021

Hunter’s Ambulance, a Hartford HealthCare company, is launching a unique recruitment program called “Earn While You Learn.” This program will train people interested in becoming an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Hartford HealthCare will pay for the state certification for those who successfully complete the training. “This is a great opportunity for any highly-motivated individual, said Matthew Skiffington, Paramedic Coordinator with Hunter’s Ambulance. Skiffington decided to take the Hunter’s EMT training class 13 years ago after he was injured in a motorcycle accident and was inspired by the medical professionals who saved his life. He has watched his career grow over the years as a result of that decision. “After being an EMT for about three years, I realized I wanted to do more and learn more and I became a paramedic and was then asked to become part of the operations’ team at Hunter’s,” said Skiffington. Here’s what you need to know about the “Earn While You Learn” program:

  • Deadline to apply is December 7
  • Qualified candidates will go through an interview process
  • Eight to 10 candidates will be chosen as part of the first round of training
  • Full-time training begins on January 17 and runs roughly 6 to 8 weeks
  • Trainees will have to come to Hunter’s Headquarters in Meriden for training
  • After training is complete, trainee will apply and test for state certification. HHC will pay for the certification. Once the trainee receives state certification, they begin working full-time as an EMT for Hunter’s Ambulance
“This program allows us to extend full time employment to those who otherwise never considered taking a medical program on their own, or didn’t have the means to pay for a full certification program,” said Gary Havican, President of The Hospital of Central Connecticut and MidState Medical Center.
