Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Paramedic

Emergency Medical Technician

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) respond to emergencies, perform basic medical procedures, and transport patients to medical facilities for further care. They may work in an ambulance, with the fire and police departments, or as part of rescue teams.

Available Programs:
  • Technical Competency Area (TCA): Emergency Medical Technician - Basic
  • Certificate of Technical Studies (CTS): Emergency Medical Technician - Paramedic

With as little as two courses, students can earn an Technical Competency Area (TCA) to become an EMT and earn salaries ranging from $23,518 to $40,413.

Our Certificate of Technical Studies in Paramedics trains students to provide advanced levels of pre-hospital care for medical emergencies and trauma.

Paramedics use complex medical equipment and work mostly in the field in ambulances and emergency response vehicles. Some paramedics may work in hospital settings.

With additional education and training, Paramedics can transition to a number of health industry professions. Paramedics earn an average of $30,606 - $48,248 per year.
