Emergency Medical Technology - Paramedic

EMT - PARAMEDIC

We have a partnership with the National EMS Academy to provide quality educational programs that allow individuals to begin or enhance their career in emergency medical services. These EMT and paramedic programs meet or exceed all state and national standards for education programs. We offer an Associate of Applied Science – Paramedic degree (see courses and degree requirements) along with a Technical Diploma – Paramedic program (see courses and degree requirements).  

Additionally, South Louisiana Community College's  National EMS Academy is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).

Students enjoy the benefits of an academically rigorous program of study, access to simulation laboratories to develop skills and hands-on clinical experience at local hospitals and with Acadian Ambulance, a nationally recognized leader in the ambulance industry.

The future for EMS careers is growing as more and more paramedics begin to act as physician extenders, bridging the gap between physicians' offices and ERs, which results in a lower patient volume for those facilities. Over the next 10 years, the increased demand and responsibility for EMS professionals will require moving from technical certificate programs to full-on degree programs. This professionalization of the field will ultimately require higher levels of reimbursement from insurance companies and higher salaries for those working in the EMS field.

Employment of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics is projected to grow 24 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
