Community Colleges’ Partnership Addressing - Jun. 05, 2019

Community Colleges’ Partnership Addressing
Workforce Needs in Emergency Medical Services
When classes begin in fall 2019, eight students may be simultaneously attending classes
at Washington County Community College while enrolled at Northern Maine
Community College.

 Thanks to a partnership between these two institutions and funding
provided by the Bring College to ME (BCTM) program of the Maine Community
College System, eight students will have the opportunity to be enrolled in the NMCC
Paramedic associate degree program.

The BCTM program is part of the MCCS’s Rural Initiative, designed to deliver targeted
program in high-skill, high-wage, and high-demand occupations to rural Maine and is
funded through a combination of philanthropic gifts and MCCS funds.

Classes will be in a hybrid format, where some instruction is provided via video
conferencing while other instruction is provided by the on-site instructor at WCCC.
This program utilizes the same technology format used by the BCTM nursing cohort that
graduated in May 2019.

This is a two-year project, which is tuition free to the eight students who qualify and are
selected for enrollment.

To learn more about this educational opportunity and to
determine whether or not this program might be for you, plan to attend the Informational
Session scheduled for Tuesday, June 18 from 5:00-7:00 pm at WCCC in the Assembly
Room of Riverview Hall or call the NMCC Admissions Office at 207-768-2785.
