Emergency Medical Technician: EMT and Paramedic (510904)

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:
Career and Technical Certificate, Emergency Medical Technician - Basic
Career and Technical Certificate, Emergency Medical Technician - Advanced
Certificate of Technical Studies, Emergency Medical Technician - Paramedic

With as little as two courses, students can earn an Career and Technical Certificate (CTC) 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.
