Career Opportunities

Once completing the EMT program, you'll be able to respond quickly to emergency situations regarding medical issues, traumatic injuries, and accident scenes. You'll also be prepared to take the National Registry EMT exam in order to become licensed. This is the entry level license for EMS providers.

Licensed EMT graduates can find employment opportunities in clinics, hospitals, fire departments, EMS agencies and more. 

Keep in mind that jobs that require providing emergency care to the sick and injured, can be demanding. Job demands include mutli-tasking, communicating clearly, performing tasks quickly and working in a stressful environment. 
Although responding quickly to emergency situations can be physically and mentally taxing, it can be very rewarding. EMTs enjoy having a positive impact on their community and being able to serve those in need.
