EMTs and Paramedics
Assess injuries, administer emergency medical care, and extricate trapped individuals. Transport injured or sick persons to medical facilities.
- Employment is projected to grow as fast as the average for all occupations.
- Emergency medical technicians and paramedics need formal training and certification or licensure, but requirements vary by State.
- Emergency services function 24 hours a day, so emergency medical technicians and paramedics have irregular working hours.
- Opportunities will be best for those who have earned advanced certifications.
