Training Program to Become a Paramedic at FORTIS Schools
If you are thinking about pursuing a career in the emergency medical services field, an EMT/Paramedic training program is one of the best ways to enter this field. FORTIS conveniently has schools in Alabama, Georgia, and Pennsylvania that offer paramedic training.
Our paramedic courses are designed to equip students with the skills necessary to provide emergency medical care at an advanced life support level so they can pursue a career working with an ambulance service, fire department, or hospital after graduation.
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a critical part of the healthcare team and the community in general. Those who work in this field as first responders are often called Paramedics or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs).
In emergency medical settings, EMTs and paramedics care for the sick or injured, whose lives often depend on the quick reaction and competent care provided by these workers. EMTs and paramedics respond to emergency calls, performing medical services and transporting patients to medical facilities.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics is projected to grow 24 percent over the next decade, which is much faster than the average for all occupations.
