Begin Your Career as an EMT


Emergency Medical Technician
Certificate Program

Sometimes a job is just a job.
For first-responders, it's a calling.

There are people who know in their hearts that helping others in critical times is what they were meant to do. It’s exciting, useful, important work. So it’s more than a job – it’s contributing to the community in a meaningful way, and offers a rewarding career path as well.

Barry University is now providing one of the best, most comprehensive training programs for Emergency Medical Technicians – the first step toward being a paramedic, a crucial role-player in the nation’s growing healthcare system.


The rewards go beyond money.
But the money isn't bad.

Well-trained EMTs are in short supply. While the majority of EMTs work for ambulance services and fire-rescue companies, EMT training can help enhance careers in many pre-hospital care categories, such as emergency rooms, security, ski patrols, harbor supervision and life guarding. As your experience and level of expertise grows, so does your income.

But the work is the thing: car accidents, gunshot wounds, heart attacks – EMTs and their partners in emergency care see and do things that few other people will ever encounter.
