If you would like an exciting career where you can serve the community in which you live, consider becoming an emergency medical technician (EMT) or paramedic.
Emergency medical services (EMT) is a demanding field requiring physical fitness and emotional stability in the face of often stressful work conditions. You must be capable of making fast, sound decisions that can mean the difference between life and death.
NPC offers two options for students:
EMT Basic Studies – This series of two courses will qualify you to sit for the EMT Basic certification exams.
The Paramedicine Program – Several options exist within this program, including two certificates and an Associate of Applied Science degree. Opportunities for promotion and higher pay increase with degree completion and national certifications.
Speak with an NPC academic adviser to discuss which option will work best for you!
