Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics care for the sick or injured in emergency medical settings. People’s lives often depend on their quick reaction and competent care. EMTs and paramedics respond to emergency calls, performing medical services and transporting patients to medical facilities. All emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics must complete a postsecondary educational program. All states require EMTs and paramedics to be licensed; requirements vary by state.

 

 Grayson College’s Emergency Services program includes the one semester EMT Certificate of Completion, the one year Paramedicine Certificate of Completion, and the Associate of Applied Science degree in Paramedicine. Students in the program receive experience in the department’s Ambulance simulator, and go on ride-outs with area EMT/Paramedic professionals.
