How To Become an EMT or Paramedic

Emergency Medical Technicians, or paramedics, as they are also called, learn how the human body works and how to take care of patients until a fully qualified professional, such as a doctor, can take over. The career opportunities for EMTs are numerous. Ambulance services, hospitals, fire departments, and police departments all have the need for trained and certified EMTs. EMT training can be completed in as little as a year. The exam for EMT certification varies from state to state, and may be different according to what kind of service organization the EMT wishes to join.
