The accrediting organization for EMT Paramedic training education in the United States is the CoAEMSP (Committee on Accreditation of EMS Education Programs), which operates under the CAAHEP (Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs).  Beginning on January 1, 2013, graduation from an accredited paramedic program will be required for those seeking certification through the National Registry.  Do note, however, that it is not necessarily a requirement that you graduate from an accredited program to find a job as a EMT or paramedic.

It’s important to know that the career of EMTs and paramedics is on the rise.  In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of EMTs and paramedics is expected to rise 23% from 2012 to 2022.  That is much faster than the average for other career fields, and it should give EMS students peace of mind knowing that they are entering a career field that is on the rise, rather than on the decline.

Also, note that all EMTs and paramedics need to complete a postsecondary educational program, which essentially means that in order to work in EMS, you will need to complete a proper training and educational program following your graduation from high school (or GED equivalent).

As far as paramedic salary is concerned, the pay rate for EMTs and paramedics can vary quite a bit.  This is mostly due to region, as someone working in Arizona is likely to may more money than a paramedic in the mid-west.  Still, the median salary for EMTs and medics, according to the BLS, is $31,020.

Strong EMT and paramedic traits are essential to the job, as well.  A lot of discussion goes into how much you can lift, or how educated or trained you are, but at the end of the day, patients (be it in Glendale, Phoenix, Tucson, Prescott, etc) want to feel like you understand their pain and concerns, and that you care about their well being.  And if you work in EMS, you really and truly should care about people.

Here’s a list of the accredited (unless otherwise noted) EMT Paramedic training programs in Arizona, which will take you directly to the school’s official website.   This list continues to be updated.
