Paramedic / Emergency Medical Services
This program is designed to meet the educational and training needs of those individuals who wish to gain Arkansas Department of Health Licensure and National Registry of EMT's Certification as a Paramedic.
Career opportunities exist with air and ground emergency medical services, fire departments, medical centers and industry. Among other characteristics, a Paramedic should possess dignity, empathy and tolerance. Under the direction of a physician, the student will be presented with material to aid them in: assessment of the pre-hospital needs of the acutely ill or injured patient, triage, basic as well as advanced life support, communication skills, and maintaining the level of care as the patient is transported to a health care facility.
*Paramedic/EMS classes are offered in both Ozark and Russellville. For more information, contact the Office of Student Services at (479) 667-2117.
