Nash Community College recently recognized 22 Emergency Medical Technician Basic and Intermediate program graduates.

The program instills discipline, character, professionalism, teamwork, integrity, credibility, physical ability, knowledge and skills to perform the job of a professional emergency medical technician.

Emergency Medical Technician Basic students participated in 179 hours of combined lecture and lab instruction and 24 hours of hands-on field training. At the intermediate level, students completed a 322 hour course.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the job outlook for emergency medical technicians to increase as a result of the aging population, an increase in time spent per call and an increase in specialty health care, resulting in more patient transport.
