Florida Paramedic

Providing emergency medical services (EMS) to people and getting them to a medical facility in a timely manner reduces disability and saves lives. Paramedics must be quick and provide competent care in all types of emergency situations. If this sounds appealing, then choosing to become a paramedic could be the perfect career choice for you. Paramedic programs in the state of Florida will train you to be a paramedic and will prepare you for the required exam.

Preparation and requirements to become a paramedic

In Florida, there are two types of certification, according to the Florida Department of Health. Participants can receive an Emergency Medical Technician or Paramedic certification when proper education and licensing requirements are completed. Students will be certified to work on a national level provided the program the potential paramedic is attending is properly accredited. A paramedic program that is not accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP), or in the Letter of Review (LoR) process, will be eligible for state certification only. People wanting to become a paramedic may want to focus on health in high school and earn a healthcare degree in college if later pursuing requirements to become a licensed paramedic. Many colleges, as well as career-oriented schools, have paramedic programs. Prospective paramedics must complete all educational requirements in a formal paramedic training program. You will also be required to successfully pass a licensing exam. You can check with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians to see if your paramedic program is nationally accredited.

Paramedic work environment

Paramedics work in a variety of indoor and outdoor situations, including in inclement weather and dangerous situations. Paramedics can be expected to often have to do heavy lifting, as well as stooping, bending and kneeling. Paramedics deal with all types of people, so it is crucial to have a calm demeanor, even when a patient may not want to comply, is mentally ill or is severely injured. Paramedics learn to deal with stressful situations while on and off the job. While challenging, a career as a paramedic is extremely rewarding.
