Science in Emergency Medical Care
Paramedic training is the most advanced level of training in the field of emergency medical services. Usually resulting in an associate degree, paramedic training requires a number of general education requirements in addition to coursework in advanced emergency medical services, including respiratory emergency care, intravenous fluids and medications.
Usually offered by technical schools and community colleges, paramedic degree programs require applicants to have at least an EMT-Basic license, hold a current CPR certification and meet all general admission requirements of the school to which they are applying. Potential students must also submit vaccination records and show proof of medical clearance from a physician.
