​Paramedic Program

A career in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) provides the student with the knowledge and training to recognize symptoms of illness and injury and to provide emergency medical care. Professionals in the field of EMS are prepared to make quick decisions based on classroom, laboratory, and field experience. Students must have a sincere desire to work with people and must be empathetic to the needs of the sick and injured. Regional EMS systems utilize two levels of practice, EMT-B and Paramedic, which are licensed by the State of Illinois.
The Paramedic program offers a higher level of skill and knowledge to render advanced life saving techniques in an emergency situation. Successful completion of the program enables the student to sit for the state licensing exam. Paramedic licensing is required for all advanced life support ambulance service.
