Paramedic

Paramedic

Certificate Description

This program will train students to become licensed Paramedics in the State of Utah and acquire a National Registry License. Paramedics are highly trained emergency response medical professionals, who are educated in making quick diagnoses and administering immediate medical care to victims of accidents, violence and sudden illnesses. Paramedics examine, evaluate, and treat patients with equipment and medications usually only found in the emergency department of a hospital.

Paramedics respond to emergency calls and work under intense pressure. Quite often, their hard work can be the difference between life and death. Paramedics must be ambitious, honest, calm, caring, non-prejudiced and non-judgmental people who are strong both mentally and physically.

ADMISSIONS & DOWNLOADS

The Paramedic program at Bridgerland Technical College is accomplished through continuous, sequential instruction, which progresses from simple to complex concepts and theories. Theory and skills are taught concurrently and utilized immediately, first in a simulated lab setting, then in health care facilities under the supervision of clinical faculty.

Employment Outlook

The words career and job are very different. To be specific, a job is what you show up to for work; a career spans your lifetime and includes your education, training, professional memberships, and is something you love doing.
