The Paramedic is an allied health professional whose primary focus is to provide advanced emergency
medical care for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. This individual
possesses the complex knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation.
Paramedics function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. Paramedics
perform interventions with the basic and advanced equipment typically found on an ambulance. The
Paramedic is a link from the scene into the health care system. (CoAEMSP Standards Interpretations 2020)

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

The EMT Academy and HCC Paramedic Consortium Paramedic Training Program (“Paramedic Program”) is a twelve-month course designed to prepare students to successfully pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) Paramedic certifying exam. The course includes a mix of both didactic (e.g. classroom) and clinical experiences that provide students with the basic medical knowledge, clinical reasoning, and judgment, and psychomotor skills necessary to function as competent and safe entry-level paramedic in the emergency pre-hospital and inter-facility transfer environments.
The course is divided into two parts:
Applicants for the Paramedic Program must meet the following requirements at the start of the program:
At the completion of the course, students sit for the NREMT paramedic written exam and must obtain a passing score to progress to the next phase of testing. Students will take the NREMT practical exam, which will occur after the scheduled end of ride time, in general. The practical exam takes place at EMT Academy, and students will complete a review period in the days leading up to the exam.
Successful completion of all portions of the paramedic program not only more-than-adequately prepares students to be successful on both components of the certifying exam but equips them with the knowledge, judgment, and experience necessary to begin their careers as paramedics, practicing the art and science of medicine in one of the most dynamic, challenging, and rewarding environments imaginable.
EMT Academy is an accredited training institution in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health Office of Emergency Medical Services.
