Quick Facts About the Program:

  • EMT/Paramedic Program offers the state of the art learning environment utilizing SimMan, Mega-Code Kelly and IV Access simulators. This allows the students to practice their skills/competencies on realistic simulators. This will prepare the students to enter the work force better prepared for real life emergencies.
  • The EMT/Paramedic Program has individual areas setup for simulation labs as well as a large area to practice hands on skills/competencies such as airway management, splinting, and advanced airway management. Simulation labs are video and audio recorded for improved learning outcomes, they include:
    •     Trauma Simulation
    •     Medical Simulation
    •     Pediatric Simulation
    •     Infant Simulation
    •     Hospital Simulation
    •     Confined area simulation (restroom, living room, etc.)
  • The classroom, utilizes Smart Board Technology, which allows the instructor to access resource information in real time allowing the students to review the material instantly. This system also allows the instructor to integrate medical animation on body systems, lung sounds, heart sounds, as well working through real time scenarios.
  • In addition the EMT/Paramedic Program shares various resources with the Police Academy and the CNA program. We share the fitness center, training equipment, and classroom simulation areas.
  • Within the EMT/Paramedic area we have a computer labs and various simulation areas such as a bathroom that has a one way mirror to observe the student working on various scenarios such as cardiac arrest, which creates a problem solving opportunity on how to successfully work on a patient and remove the patient from a confined space.
  • After successfully completing the programs the student will be allowed to sit for the National Registry Licensure Test and become a licensed EMT or Paramedic in the State of Missouri or the opportunity to work in most states with their National Registry License. The Paramedic Program has an 87% NREMT written test pass rate.
