Emergency Medical Technician (Basic/Paramedic)
EMT-Paramedics study the similar topics as EMT-Basics, but more in depth. EMT-Paramedics also have more responsibilities and play a larger role in the EMS system. In the EMT majors students will learn airway management and ventilation, how to perform patient assessment, how to respond and treat patients in medical emergencies, and how to manage trauma patients. They will gain fundamental knowledge of EMS operational roles and responsibilities, including ethics, to ensure safe and effective response, scene management, and transport of patients. Students practice in a variety of settings as chosen by the instructor. Students must obtain EMT-Paramedic certification to work in this field.
