REMSA offers a private, licensed, post-secondary education center with an accredited paramedic program. Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT), and Paramedic courses are available throughout the year. In addition, refresher courses are offered for all of the EMS disciplines.
Paramedics are trained in advanced cardiac life support, neonatal resuscitation, pediatric advanced life support and trauma life support. They have a vast knowledge of medications, cardiac interpretations and anatomy. Paramedics also have advanced skill sets allowing them to perform in-the-field lifesaving procedures.
Becoming an EMT is the building block of an EMS career. As an EMT you learn how to control and manage bleeding, shock, pregnancy complications, minor to moderate burns, CPR, trauma, and allergic reactions. You will also learn basic medication administration, assessments and vehicle operations.
AEMT competencies include the recognition, assessment, and management of medical and trauma emergencies and provides prehospital emergency care to acutely ill or injured patients. AEMTs have expanded knowledge on anatomy, physiology, skills, and medication administration from the EMT level.
