How We Support You in the EMT Role

While the program is largely designed to be self-managed, EMTs are assigned a coach at their location who is responsible for partnering with them throughout their program. The EMT is provided with a comprehensive list of business processes, experiences and training that the trainee must participate in or have exposure to throughout the course of the 18 months. EMT and Coach establish a monthly plan to ensure that the EMT is involved in all critical aspects of our business, and oftentimes EMTs are pulled into projects and special assignments that inevitably boost their learning. EMTs begin their program in a 3 day session at Headquarters and come back during the program for a full week of Leadership and Headquarter functions training, and their Capstone project launch and report out.
