MADISON, Fla. (WTXL) — Looking to become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or commercial truck driver? North Florida College is offering fast and potentially free training this summer.

Through a partnership with the Florida Department of Education, NFC has Rapid Credentialing Scholarships available that may cover up to 100 percent of tuition, books and associated fees for its June 1 starting EMT class and July 30 starting CDL course.

Training for both programs can be completed in just one semester, 12 weeks for CDL and 16 weeks for EMT. Potential students must meet program entrance requirements to enroll and to qualify for the summer scholarships.

Those interested are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. These programs are limited capacity, and a limited number of scholarships are available.
