Rewarding career as AN EMT is closer than you might think
Do you feel a calling to help people when they are sick or injured? Have you ever considered becoming an Emergency Medical Technician? If you’re looking for a rewarding career, we’re looking for you.
To become a Med Center Health EMT, you must be 18 years old, read, write and understand English, have a high school diploma or equivalent and have a current CPR certification equivalent to the American Heart Association’s Course C for Professional Rescuers.
An EMT is trained to provide initial stabilization of a sick or injured person. Trained also in bleeding control, treatment of shock, monitoring vital signs, splinting factures, spinal immobilization, oxygen administration and other basic level skills, an EMT is prepared for virtually anything they might see in the real world.
Med Center Health offers an EMT training course, which the prospective EMT must complete, usually about 130 hours. The next step is for course graduates to successfully pass the National Registry of EMTs, Basic Exam. Once certified, some additional training, such as use of the Automated External Defibrillator for certain cardiac conditions is also taught.
