Announcement of Tuition Increase
June 2024

At Rescue Training Inc., we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing the highest quality education and training for our EMT and Paramedic students. Our mission is to equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in your crucial roles within the community.

In light of this, we are writing to inform you of an upcoming adjustment to our tuition fees. Due to substantial increases in operational costs over the past few years, including higher prices for essential training equipment, insurance, facility maintenance, and the need to remain competitive in attracting and retaining top-tier instructors, we find it necessary to raise our tuition rates. Most increases are less than 8%

It has been a few years since our last tuition adjustment. During this time, we have strived to absorb these increasing expenses without compromising the quality of our programs. However, to continue offering the exceptional education and support services you expect and deserve, a tuition increase is now unavoidable.

Effective Date: The new tuition rates will take effect on July 1, 2024.

New Tuition Rates: Detailed information regarding the new tuition rates will be available on this website and through the main office. We encourage you to review these changes and reach out with any questions or concerns.

Financial Aid and Support: We understand that this change may pose challenges for some of our students. To assist those in need, we are enhancing our financial aid offerings and support services. Please contact us to explore the options available to you.

We are committed to maintaining transparency throughout this process and ensuring that all students and families understand the necessity of this adjustment. Our goal is to continue delivering high-quality education and training, preparing our students to meet the demanding needs of their future careers in emergency medical services.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we navigate these changes. Your investment in your education is an investment in the safety and well-being of the communities you will serve.

Thank you for your continued trust in Rescue Training Inc.
