SHERMAN, Texas -- A new outreach program at Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center is aimed at helping people in the emergency medical service field get help with their training.

Once a month, the hospital hosts classes for all medical personnel to provide the education needed to pass certification tests. 

Grayson College emergency medical technician student Bryan Forth said the free training is friendly to his budget.

"How much would i be spending? Quite a bit," he said. "Getting continued education, depending on where you decide to go, you spend $100 or $200 for a class that lasts 4 or 5 hours."

EMS professionals said they have to take hundreds of hours of classes before they can become certified in the State of Texas and added to a national registry of qualified personnel.
