Emergency Medical Technician

Degree: Certificate

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics respond to medical emergencies, such as heart attacks or car accidents. EMTs are most frequently found in ambulances but some may provide care for patients being transported by air as well.

EMTs are on the front lines at the scene with the sick and injured, as well as when they are being transported to the hospital for care. They typically operate in teams with one person serving as an emergency vehicle operator, while the other continues to provide life-saving emergency care to the patient en route to a medical facility.
