Helping people feels good, but being the one to help during an emergency feels even better. Think of the comfort in knowing that paramedics, emergency medical technicians (EMT), and other critical care specialists are ready and waiting to act when they receive a call. EMT and paramedic training could be the first step towards a career you love and work you can really take pride in.
A paramedic is a respected member of the community—a hometown hero. Unlike many careers, EMT training can begin right after high school with no prior degree. After only four months, EMT training is complete and students can begin working while continuing on to complete their paramedic training.
The National EMS Academy (NEMSA) maintains six campuses in Louisiana. The online-hybrid component and classroom simulation days give students the flexibility to work while completing their training. NEMSA instructors are friendly and accommodating—working with students to help them manage their time and complete their coursework.
TAKE THE FIRST STEP.
Information sessions are an essential part of the enrollment process for EMT, Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) and paramedic programs. At an information session, students learn about
the hybrid online program schedule, enrollment processes, current tuition, financial aid options, and payment options. Instructors will be available to answer questions in the chat during and after the session.
All information sessions are held online via WebEx. You can view and attend an information session from a computer or mobile device. If you do not have access to the internet, please visit your local library.
Without a doubt, EMS workers provide an invaluable service. They literally carry lives in their hands, and they work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of others. Visit nationalemsacademy.com to learn more and to sign up for an info session or call 1-866-459-3500.
