Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Paramedic

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and paramedics 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, Emergency Medical Technician - Basic
Technical Competency Area, Emergency Medical Technician - Advanced
Certificate of Technical Studies, Emergency Medical Technician - Paramedic

With as little as two courses, students can earn an Technical Competency Area (TCA) to become an EMT.

The Certificate of Technical Studies in EMT - Paramedic 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.

The Nunez Community College Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT's Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
