'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.

Legionnaires' outbreak leaves 4 dead at Illinois veterans home: newspaper
31 Aug 2015 at 9:41pm
The outbreak in Quincy, which is about 240 miles southwest of Chicago, follows recent outbreaks of the respiratory illness that killed a dozen people in New York City and has sickened inmates at a California prison. Adams County, Illinois, health officials have confirmed that the more than two dozen cases all are connected to the Quincy veterans' home, the newspaper said. In New York, an outbreak traced to the historic Opera House Hotel killed 12 people and sickened 128 before it was declared over in August.


Daily pot smoking on U.S. college campuses at 35-year high: study
31 Aug 2015 at 9:11pm

The number of U.S. college students smoking marijuana every day or nearly every day is greater than it has been in 35 years, according to a study released on Tuesday. Nearly 6 percent of college students reported using pot daily or near-daily in 2014, up from 3.5 percent in 2007 but less than the 7.2 percent recorded in 1980, the University of Michigan's Monitoring the Future study found. "It's clear that for the past seven or eight years there has been an increase in marijuana use among the nation's college students," said Lloyd Johnston, the study's principal author.


China Caixin factory, service PMIs suggest economic slowdown worsening
31 Aug 2015 at 7:20pm
Activity in China's vast factory sector shrank at its fastest pace in almost 6-1/2 years in August, a private survey showed on Tuesday, increasing investor fears that the world's second-largest economy may be lurching toward a hard landing. Some economists believe China's current growth rate is already much weaker, and investors fear the twin shocks from a yuan currency devaluation and stock market collapse over the summer have put the economy and financial system at even greater risk.

China August services activity falls to lowest level in over a year - Caixin PMI
31 Aug 2015 at 7:10pm
Activity in China's services sector expanded at its slowest rate in more than a year in August, a private survey showed on Tuesday, a worrying sign for what has been one of the lone bright spots in the cooling economy. Services have accounted for the biggest part of China's economic output for at least two years, with resilience in the sector helping to cushion the downdraft from persistent weakness in the factory sector.

Regulations may make kids' fast food meals healthier
31 Aug 2015 at 2:53pm

By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - Regulating fast food kids' meals that include toys may end up making the meals healthier, according to a new study. If a proposed new policy in New York City is approved, then fast food meals that come with toys would contain fewer calories overall, and fewer from fat and sodium, researchers report. "We can create policies that will nudge us toward healthier behaviors," said senior author Marie Bragg, of NYU Langone Medical Center in New York.

People who lack sleep are more likely to catch colds
31 Aug 2015 at 2:31pm

People who do not get enough sleep are four times more likely than their well-rested counterparts to catch a cold, US researchers said Monday. The findings in the journal Sleep are based on a study of 164 volunteers who allowed themselves to be exposed to the cold virus by researchers who were also tracking their sleep habits. Once sequestered in the hotel, researchers administered the cold virus via nasal drops and monitored the volunteers for a week, collecting daily mucus samples to see if the virus had taken hold.



Chipotle sued over GMO-free menu claims
31 Aug 2015 at 2:19pm

A California woman has accused the popular chain in a lawsuit of false advertising after it trumpeted on April 27 that it was the first national restaurant company to use only ingredients that are free of controversial genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. In her lawsuit filed Friday in federal court in San Francisco, the plaintiff Colleen Gallagher also alleged that Chipotle violated the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act because its food labeling is false and misleading, and deceived diners into paying more for their food. "As Chipotle told consumers it was 'G-M-Over it,' the opposite was true," the Piedmont, California resident said.



New guidelines for cancer doctors aim to make sense of gene tests
31 Aug 2015 at 2:00pm

By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has issued guidelines on how cancer doctors should approach the use of new genetic tests that screen for multiple cancer genes at the same time, including counseling patients about genes whose contribution to cancer is still poorly understood. The guidelines aim to educate doctors about the risks and benefits of new genetic tests, argue for regulation to assure quality and call for more equitable reimbursement of the cost of the tests from private and public insurers. The falling price of genome sequencing has made it possible for cancer doctors to cheaply test for a wide variety of mutated genes that could guide treatment or predict a person's risk for cancer.
