People’s lives often depend on the quick reactions and care of Paramedics.  Make an impact and save lives with the Emergency Medical Technician – Paramedic program at Moraine Park.

Moraine Park Technical College’s Emergency Medical Technician – Paramedic program strives to prepare competent entry-level EMT-Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills) and affective (behavior) learning domains to perform pre-hospital medical procedures.

EMTs respond to emergencies and transport patients to appropriate care facilities. Working as an EMT, you’ll respond to a number of situations ranging from vehicle crashes, heart attacks, childbirths to gunshot wounds.

What You’ll Learn

Paramedic students learn vital skills to perform advanced prehospital medical procedures. Incidents such as heart attacks, drownings, childbirth, auto accidents and gunshot wounds require immediate attention—it’s Paramedics who can intervene in these instances and save lives! Students learn about advanced patient assessment, ambulance operations, and both medical and trauma related emergencies.

After completing this program, you must successfully pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians cognitive and psychomotor examinations to qualify for a Wisconsin Paramedic license.

Students accepted into the Paramedic program must complete health requirements and a criminal background check. Students must be either a licensed EMT or AEMT and maintain the licensure throughout the program.
