1 Program Information Brief Paramedic What is a Specialist Certificate? For all campus information, call or , extension Call this number to speak with an advisor about the program. It is a short-term credit program intended to provide you with the latest information and skills needed to function more effectively in your job or to update your skills for employment possibilities. It will provide you and an employer with evidence of your continued education in a specific occupational area. The education you gain will broaden your skills and increase your ability to function in a given area. The Paramedic certificate prepares individuals to use critical thinking skills to provide treatment for medical, trauma and cardiac emergencies in the pre-hospital setting. The Paramedic transports patients to and between hospitals using ground and air ambulances, and performs skills in a variety of settings including emergency departments, critical care units and cardiac catheter labs. Course content includes anatomy and physiology, pathology and the identification and initial diagnosis of disease and injury in a variety of populations. Paramedics initiate IVs, perform endotracheal intubation, read electrocardiograms and provide cardiac defibrillation. Instruction in rescue operations, crisis scene management and medical triage is included. This program will prepare students to become a Paramedic. The program provides students with the necessary preparatory courses for seeking certification as a Nationally Registered Paramedic, which leads to certification as a Paramedic in the state of Iowa. National certification will require a passing score on a nationally recognized certification exam of Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic (NREMT-P). At the successful completion of the program, a Paramedic certificate will be awarded. The student may further their education by obtaining an A.A.S. degree. (See the Paramedic A.A.S. degree PIB.) The Paramedic certificate is the foundation of the degree. Within the degree, students may choose to specialize in one of three concentrations: management, clinical or fire science. Most paramedics are interested in one of these areas of expertise. Criminal background checks will be completed on each student. Criminal convictions or documented history of abuse may delay or prevent students from participation in paramedic education experiences. Students unable to participate in paramedic education will be unable to complete the Paramedic program.

Transport patients to various kinds of medical facilities (e.g., hospitals, nursing homes, etc.) at times, using special equipment such as backboards to immobilize patients. Report observations and actions to emergency department staff. Perform emergency medical care under the direction of a physician. After each run in an ambulance, replace used supplies and check equipment. Work in a variety of practice settings, including hospitals, private ambulance services, fire departments, educational institutions and medical supply companies. What Skills and Abilities Will You Need? Must be adaptable to work both indoors and out, in all types of weather.

Courses are taught by individuals experienced in the field and are offered at a variety of times. You will be required to communicate easily and clearly with patients and coworkers. You must accept responsibility for your actions. You will stand and walk most of the day. Working under pressure requires good physical health and emotional stability. You will be working with patients who may be contagious or have communicable diseases. You will have access to private health information and will need to maintain confidentiality of patient information. By the year 2017 (estimated), certification for the state of Iowa will require a Paramedic education. Credentialing in the state of Iowa may be obtained by passing the Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic exam. There are two parts for the NREMT-P. First, the paramedic student must pass the practical exam and then must pass the written exam. The Paramedic is required to obtain continuing education hours for recertification within two years of initial certification. Paramedic Certificate ( )
