Paramedics are individuals who are equipped to serve other people who need their services during life threatening situations. They are the ones who immediately respond when alerts come in through urgent medical devices that people, mostly adult children of elderly parents, invest in so the proper authorities  get alerts for loved ones’ wellbeing. The working hours of a paramedic may be longer or irregular compared to those of other occupations. However, the rewards of helping other people during emergencies are greatly fulfilling.


Before becoming a certified paramedic, a person must attain and pass all the prerequisite levels of paramedic courses. These courses are the stepping-stones to attaining not only a title but also to helping people during emergencies when calls come in through medical alert systems.


People who are interested in pursuing this career path must enroll in paramedic courses that are widely offered all over the country. Most of the time, these courses are offered in community colleges. Many who became paramedics were inspired enough to dream big and dream of  becoming a physician.


Level 1: Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Basic


The first level of a paramedic course is EMT-basic. The main goal of this course is to prepare individuals for medical emergencies through applying basic medical procedures on the scene that includes stabilization and ambulance transport.


EMT-basic also helps the students to assess and use different medical tactics in saving their patient's life necessary during emergency cases. Airway management, traumatic care managements, patient extraction form damaged vehicles, and such are some basic lectures in EMT-basic.


These level courses are developed for those individuals seeking to start their career in enhancing their healthcare professional employment opportunities. They can apply at medical emergency departments, municipal and private EMS agencies, urgent care clinics and other health care systems. However, if a person wants to become a paramedic one must proceed to the next level.


Level 2: Emergency Medical Technician Intermediate


The second level of the paramedic course is EMT-intermediate. This course is the mid-training between the basic and preparatory for paramedic course. In this course, students are able to experience emergency fieldwork depending on the required hours of the learning or training institutions. It assists individual to enhance their basic knowledge and sharpen their skills during fieldwork where they apply everything they have learned from lectures and demonstrations regarding basic life support and other medical procedures.


Same as the first level, a person must be good in written and practical examination to be able to advance into the course of paramedic. Take into consideration that the method of examinations may differ depending on the state.


Level 3: Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic


The third level of the paramedic course is EMT-paramedic. In this course, the students are taught to reassess and refresh all of the basic principles that they have learned in the previous course and move to more advanced medical lectures and procedures.


Advanced knowledge, skills, and training are the top priority of this course. It also molds students to respond to emergencies with a swift and precise approach in conducting health care intervention that must not put the patient in undue risks.


Students in this level are given the opportunity to work with certified professionals inside and outside the ambulance. This assists them to develop and enhance not only their skills and knowledge but also their responsibilities and confidence as one of the future paramedics.


After passing the course, it is important to pass the national licensing examination for paramedics so one can start practicing  emergency medicine and saving lives.
