Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic Program


What does an Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic do?

The EMT-Paramedic Program prepares students to become a highly skilled health care provider. An Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic, through performance of patient assessments and provision of emergency medical care, strives to meet the goals of preventing and reducing mortality and morbidity due to illness and injury. Paramedics primarily provide care to emergency patients in and out of hospital settings. The Paramedic certificate program prepares the graduate for a career as a certified Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic. Graduates of the Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic Program can find a career in several areas such as ambulance services, air ambulances, fire service, military medics, tactical Emergency Medical Technician, Park Ranger/Search and Rescue, and Overseas Paramedic.  For further information, contact Paula Johnson at This email address is being protected from spambots.

New River CTC's Paramedic programs are offered at the Raleigh County Campus in Beaver, WV, the Lee Street Complex in Lewisburg, WV, and the Workforce Building located near the Nicholas County Campus, in Summersville, WV. The programs are structured to incorporate a large amount of hands-on learning opportunities. Students participate in a variety of laboratory skills to learn and refine patient assessment and treatment skills as well as community outreach activities. Students have the opportunity to sit for National Registry of EMT’s (NREMT’s) paramedic certification skill examination at New River CTC, and the written examination at any participating Pearson Vue testing center.

The facilities include mobile laboratory skill stations, and Fixed-Position High Fidelity Simulation Stations at the Raleigh County and Nicholas County campus locations. The mobile skill lab hosts both low and medium fidelity patient simulators that prepare the practitioner to perform advanced level procedures including, but not limited to: Patient Assessment, Intubation and Ventilation management, IV establishment, Cardiac Arrest simulation through ECG monitoring and electrical therapy.
