It is possible to have a career that is rewarding, reliable, and financially sweet. Now is the perfect time to do something about it.
Not everybody has what it takes to be an EMT or paramedic. First-responders are special. They’re often the first on the scene of an emergency. They are the ones who respond to calls to 911.
If you decide to become one, you’ll administer treatment to injured or ill people and transport those people to a nearby medical facility.
You’ll have to deal with people in life-or-death situations. You might be indoors, outdoors, depending on the day — and in all sorts of situations and weather conditions.
All EMTs and paramedics have to complete a formal training program. We prepare EMTs and paramedics to be licensed and ready to meet Michigan’s requirements.
EMTs and paramedics make in the neighborhood of $30,000 per year.
National stats show the field including EMTs and paramedics is expected to grow by 33 percent between now and 2020 — that’s much faster than the average for all other fields. For details, visit www.bls.gov.
It makes all the sense in the world to make this happen at Kirtland. If you want to be an EMT, keep that dream alive, take charge of your future—and make a difference.
