LifeNet is committed to providing continuing education and training for our staff that address changes in our industry, new technologies, expectations of the Medical Directors, QI initiatives, etc. Most employees appreciate these needs and they also have a fundamental desire – to obtain all the hours necessary to recertify.
Perhaps the most serious investment that LifeNet makes towards its employee’s education is the tuition reimbursement program which can reimburse you up to 100% of the costs of approved college education expenses.
At LifeNet, it is our goal to provide you with the latest equipment to make your job safer and easier.
