Program Information

School:Southeast Regional College
Degree:Certificate
Field of Study:Emergency Medical Technology/Technician (EMT Paramedic)
Description:Being a Primary Care Paramedic(PCP) is all about teamwork. There’s a sense of camaraderie you won’t find in many other jobs. But it takes a special kind of person. You have to want to help people, because you will be dealing with all ages in all kinds of crises. You have to work well under pressure, because you will be delivering pre-hospital emergency care in peoples' homes, in the middle of busy streets and/or at industrial sites.

This program emphasizes hands on training in pre-hospital emergency care with both hospital and ambulance practicums.
