Los Angeles, CA, November 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Students with Universal Careers got a little more insight into their chosen field, as seven EMT/paramedics attended a conference on October 18, 2010. The guest speakers were able to share their experiences as EMTs/paramedics and talk about their love for the job.
After the talk, the more than 50 students in attendance were invited to ask questions. The conference provided students with a more candid look into the role of EMTs/paramedics than is always possible in an academic setting.
“This was a great chance to get information,” said Stacy Kellogg, a UC student. “The EMTs and paramedics who spoke told us a lot. They talked about a lot of things that don't come up in training.”
This kind of opportunity is part of what Universal Careers EMT training program offers.
Universal Careers, an EMT and paramedic training institution, provides students with the tools necessary to enter the health care field. The courses give students an intense, hands-on training to prepare them for certification as EMTs, with assistance in finding a job in any state in the U.S.
With professionals as teachers, students learn what is needed in the health care field now. Students at Universal Careers are ready for jobs as EMTs in 14 days with UC's nationally recognized program. With an aging population, the United States is poised to need a large number of EMT/paramedics.
During the next decade, the job field for EMT/paramedics is estimated to grow by 9% according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. New EMTs are needed to meet that demand, as well as replace those professionals who are leaving the field.
