I enjoyed speaking with you this morning regarding the EMT class that is to be held in Oconee in March 2016 with Shawn McDine as the instructor.
Tri-County Technical College has been awarded scholarship money for those that are unemployed or underemployed. After speaking with you this morning, you seem to have approximately 20 people that fit this need. The students are able to receive up to $2000.00 (which would cover the cost of the course to include the books). I am attaching the application for you to have them fill out as soon as you possible can. This money is on a first come first serve bases, so prompt action is required.
I have attached the application for you to review and distribute. It would be great and much more efficient, if you could scan and email all 20 back to me. It would be easier to approve. Once we approve, I could bring the letter of commitment to you and you have them sign the letter. Also, if you could provide me with a photo copy of their State ID and their HS Diploma/GED, this would be helpful. My goal is to make this as painless as I possibly can for you all.
In the meantime, lets contact DHEC and find out what needs to be done to get you all aligned with us so that we can utilize your facility. As a side note if you would like to move the class up, we can definitely look into that. If it is feasible, I would suggest starting the class around mid-January.
I also would like to add that we have been approved by DHEC to provide the community paramedic program and I am attaching a flyer for you to pass around (unfortunately scholarship funds are not available for this program). However, I am seeking to fill the seats for this class pretty fast in January and would appreciate you spreading the word throughout the community.
Thanks a bunch for seeking out Tri-County Technical College and I look forward to working with you.
