Academy is a pathway to starting a career at Hall Ambulance.

Hall Ambulance has opened recruitment for Class 34 of the Hall EMT Academy, which starts in April.  Recruits are full-time employees who learn everything they need to get started working as an emergency medical technician in the Hall Ambulance 9-1-1 system. 

The Hall EMT Academy is not a school, but a pathway to starting a career at 
Hall Ambulance.  It is comprised of full-time classroom and field training in a 12-week accelerated format.  Upon completion, graduates will be certified and ready to start responding to requests for medical aid as an integral part of Kern County’s EMS system.

 EMTs administer basic life support, operate ambulances—often responding code 3, and assist their paramedic-partner on scene with providing patient care.

 To be eligible for the Hall EMT Academy, you must be at least 20-years-old, with a high school diploma/GED, a valid Class C California Driver License, good vision, the ability to lift up to 75 lbs., willing to work all assigned shifts, and able to pass a background check.

 Hall Ambulance Service has developed a proven career-path in which an individual can fast-track their EMS career starting with the Hall EMT Academy.  After getting some experience under their belt, they may become eligible to apply for and attend the Bakersfield College Paramedic Program on a Company-sponsorship.  Founder and President Harvey L. Hall takes pride in assisting dedicated employees in moving their career forward by paying for their tuition and normal hourly pay so that they can concentrate fully on their coursework to become a paramedic.
