'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.

Teen contraband cigarette use linked to other drugs
18 Dec 2014 at 11:35am
By Kathryn Doyle Reuters Health - Compared to those who don?t smoke illicit tobacco, kids who do are more likely to try other illegal drugs like cocaine, heroin and amphetamines, according to a recent Canadian study. The researchers used survey data from one point in time, so they can?t say that smoking illegal cigarettes leads to drug use, only that the two often coincide and that?s enough to warrant stronger tobacco control policies. ?The concern for us is that contraband tobacco may be a gateway to other drugs, but we cannot infer causality,? said coauthor Mesbah F. ...
