'EMT Paramedic Training' In California Information is Now Available for Prospective Students to See.

(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 11, 2012 ) Clarkston, Washington -- According to the United States Department of Labor, Employment of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and EMT paramedics is expected to grow by 19 percent between 2006 and 2016, which is faster than the average for all occupations. Regardless of the current economic challenges for jobs and employment, pursing EMT and EMT paramedic certification is a worthy career path.

California has one of the largest EMT/EMS services in the entire country and the state is continually hiring certified EMT personnel. EMT training and EMT paramedic training, licensing, and certification in the state of California are governed by the Emergency Medical Services Authority or EMSA. This state bureau has the responsibility of managing the entire EMS system for the state of California.

Both EMTs and EMT paramedics must complete a CA EMT training program that is state accredited in order to be certified. California EMT training alone is not sufficient; it requires a state accredited program or courses. The state of California and the EMSA also require the individual who has completed EMT training to pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) exam and recognizes the exam certification if taken in other states.
California EMT training applicants who wish to take the EMT certification test are first required to have 110 hours of EMT training instructional study, and another 10 hours of medical training studies. Paramedic training in California requires a minimum of 1,090 hours for training.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for emergency medical services to recruit and retain unpaid volunteers because of the amount of EMT training and EMT paramedic training, and the large time commitment these positions require. Not to mention liability. As a result, more paid EMTs and paramedics are needed. Furthermore, as a large segment of the population—aging members of the baby boom generation—becomes more likely to have medical emergencies, demand will increase for EMTs and paramedics. There will still be demand for part-time, volunteer EMTs and paramedics in rural areas and smaller metropolitan areas.

Job prospects for EMTs and paramedics should be very favorable and job opportunities should be best in private ambulance services. Competition will be greater for jobs in local government, including fire, police, and independent third-service rescue squad departments, which tend to have better salaries and benefits. EMTs and paramedics who have advanced EMT training education and paramedic training, such as Paramedic level certification, should enjoy the most favorable job prospects, as employees and patients demand higher levels of care before arriving at the hospital.

Top China golfer Feng not to allow Zika fears ruin Rio dream
30 Jun 2016 at 3:21am

(Reuters) - Top Chinese woman golfer Shanshan Feng will compete at the Rio Games despite concerns over Zika virus and the world number 12 says she fears for the sport's Olympic future following some high-profile withdrawals from the men's competition. Golf's return to Olympics for the first time since 1904 has been hit by pullouts by several top male golfers, including world number one Jason Day, multiple major champion Rory McIlroy, Fiji's Vijay Singh and Charl Schwartzel of South Africa. The mosquito-borne Zika virus, which the World Health Organization says is spreading rapidly in the Americas, can cause crippling defects in babies and has been linked to the neurological disorder Guillain-Barre in adults.

Zika sex research begins despite U.S. Congress funding impasse
30 Jun 2016 at 3:00am
(Repeating for additional clients with no changes to text) By Bill Berkrot June 30 (Reuters) - It could take years to learn how long men infected with Zika are capable of sexually transmitting the virus, which can cause crippling birth defects and other serious neurological disorders. In the meantime, health officials have warned couples to refrain from unprotected sex for six months after a male partner is infected. The extraordinary recommendation, based on a single report of Zika surviving 62 days in semen, could affect millions.

Japan regulator approves Canon deal to buy Toshiba unit, warns on method
30 Jun 2016 at 1:57am

By Junko Fujita TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's anti-monopoly regulator has approved Canon Inc's acquisition of Toshiba Corp's medical equipment unit, but issued a warning over the way they carried out the deal, which antitrust experts have called questionable. Toshiba, hurt by an accounting scandal and in a hurry to raise cash before closing its books for the business year that ended in March, structured the 665.5 billion yen ($6.5 billion) sale in an unorthodox way so that it could book proceeds before securing approval from regulators. Some antitrust and accounting experts at the time said the method, involving the use of a special entity and the issuance of warrants to allow Toshiba to receive cash from Canon before regulatory approval, was problematic though not illegal.

Tango therapy lifts spirits of Argentine mental patients
30 Jun 2016 at 12:04am

The shadows of barred windows make the Buenos Aires psychiatric hospital seem especially soulless, but then the syncopated beats of tango music fill the air. For a handful of residents at the Borda hospital, the daily shuffle in line for medication has given way to the sensual steps of Argentina's classic dance. "People with mental illnesses tend to be passive receptors, but in tango they are transmitters," dance teacher Laura Segade said.

29 Jun 2016 at 11:37pm

(Reuters) - An Olympic gold medal was not the pinnacle of the sport for golfers according to world number four Rory McIlroy, and he had no concerns about his decision to withdraw from the Rio de Janeiro Games. The Northern Irishman withdrew from the Rio Games last week, citing concerns about the Zika virus, though he also told British media the Olympics were not one of his goals. "Most other athletes dream their whole lives of competing in the Olympics, winning an Olympic gold, and we haven't," McIlroy told British media.
