Emergency Medical Services
Do you thrive under pressure? Do you have a passion for helping others? Emergency Medical Services personnel work on the front lines of health care, providing time-critical support to patients before they reach a hospital. NVC’s program can take you from start to finish in your preparation for a career.
Career opportunities improve with each level of training and certification achieved. Certified EMRs are most frequently hired by private firms, while EMTs are often employed by transport agencies. Due to their extensive training, paramedics enjoy the highest pay and widest range of job options, and are typically employed in fire departments, transport agencies, and hospitals. EMT or Paramedic certification are often required for firefighter candidates in California.
