Emergency medical technicians or “EMTs” and paramedics care for sick or injured people in emergency settings. EMTs and paramedics don’t work the usual 9-5 schedule, some work 12-24 hour shifts at a time with overnights and weekends. Careers in the emergency medical field are projected to grow 24% from 2014 to 2024, which is much faster than the average field. A career as an EMT or paramedic is great for a student looking for a fast-pace, exciting environment who enjoys problem-solving.

A career as an EMT or paramedic can be very fulfilling, as they are constantly helping others, however, it can be very stressful and strenuous. If you are ready to explore a career in emergency medical care join Technology & Trades on the Prairie at the 2017 Career Institute!
