The Summer 2021 Class has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A message from the Vice President of Education:
My name is Isabella Turilli, and I’m the Vice President of Education for GERMS. Over the past semester, my department and I have been working closely with our medical directors, and officials at the DC Department of Health to restart our class offering this summer. Despite our best efforts, however, GERMS will not be running a Summer 2021 EMT-B class.
Regulatory requirements and timing delays were unfortunately exacerbated by the pandemic in a way that prevents us from running our Summer 2021 class. This is hugely disappointing for us, as we were excited to get back to teaching the next generation of EMTs in the District. This being said, we are looking forward to improving our class offerings over the next several months in the hopes of offering a fulfilling, in-person EMT class during the Fall 2021 semester.
I apologize for any inconvenience caused by this news. My team and I could not foresee the delays that precipitated the cancellation, and we are deeply sorry that we won’t be able to fulfill our commitment to EMS education on campus.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We hope to meet – and teach! – you on campus this coming year.
Isabella and the Training Team
