Emergency Medical Technician - Paramedic

Life Force

On the scene

When a sudden illness or accident occurs, police are often the first to respond. But as a skilled EMT-Paramedic, you’ll quickly follow and take over the care of the patient.

After the patient is stabilized, you’ll continue to monitor vitals and respond to their medical needs as they’re transported by an Advanced Life Support unit to the hospital and waiting doctors and nurses.

It’s a work environment that is adrenalin-charged and fast paced, and your paramedic training will often mean the difference between life and death.

Emergency Medical Technician - Paramedic

Fire chiefs’ first choice

Our faculty know what it’s like to save someone’s life.

As working or retired paramedics they’ve done it many times. They’ll teach you about:

  • Paramedic procedures
  • Emergency management
  • Pharmacology
  • And much more!

There are also EMT and hospital clinicals that will give you hands-on experience in the field. The College Catalog provides a complete look at what the program consists of.

Our program will also prepare you to take the National Registry Examination and provides you with credits that transfer if you want to continue on toward a bachelor’s degree.

With our expert faculty and advanced training facilities, our program is the first choice of all emergency medical service providers in Michigan and is endorsed by the Macomb County Fire Chiefs Association!

A skills ladder

Once you complete the EMT portion of the program, you can begin working as an EMT for a fire department or a private emergency services provider. 

Our program is designed to let you balance work while continuing on toward your paramedic license.

All of these skills are in great demand and pay well, as you’ll see using this handy tool.

While you’ll likely be recruited by a fire department right out of the program, our Career Services team is also here to help you with job search and resume and interview-preparation.
