Career Pathway Guide
The Emergency Medical Services program at NACC stands ready to
prepare you for an exciting career in emergency medical
services. There are three levels of emergency medical services
providers in Alabama. EMTs are licensed to provide basic life
support and to assist the sick and injured. Advanced EMTs
provide limited Advanced Life Support (ALS) skills. Paramedics are
licensed to provide all aspects of advanced life support,
including cardiac monitoring, defibrillation, cardioversion,
emergency pacing, administration of medications, and intubation.
Paramedics are in high demand locally and across the U.S.
Northeast's paramedic program is accredited by the Commission on
Accreditation of Allied Health Programs (CAAHEP) and approved by
the Alabama Department of Public Health. Upon successful
completion of EMT, Advanced EMT, and Paramedic curricula, the
student may sit for the National Registry of EMTs examination
and apply for state licensure.
