EMT Training is the first step for any student interested in a career in the healthcare industry. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of emergency medical technicians and paramedics expected to rise 33 percent between 2010 and 2020, due to an increase in health emergencies as the population of middle-aged and elderly people grows. Those with EMT certification can work as a paramedic, firefighter, emergency department technician, home health care provider, dispatching communications specialist or a health screener.
