  • Add "EMT" To Your Emergency Professional Resume

    Many Fire Fighters find it beneficial not only to themselves, but their departments, to add an EMT certification to their professional certifications. More and more FD's are working EMS into their services, making EMT Fire Fighters more in demand. The only thing standing in the way of many Fire Fighters is time available to attend school. Busy schedules as an Emergency Responder definitely hinders attending traditional school environments, but that doesn't mean that training for EMT is impossible.

    There are some online options that are more self-paced to meet the scheduling needs of the modern emergency professional. One example of this is PERCOM's Online EMS Academy. PERCOM has catered to numerous Fire Fighters across the country who are chasing their EMT & Paramedic certifications for over 10 years. Regardless of the fact that it is based online, PERCOM's Nationally Accredited Paramedic Program is among the highest rated programs in the nation, in regards to NREMT First Attempt Pass Rates. These numbers are based on successful students just like yourselves, that work crazy hours and have lives and families outside of 911.

    Some other online EMT schools are,, and Not all online programs are the same, though. Some are self-paced and open enrollment, others are more traditional with set class dates. Tuition and program costs vary from one to the next, and virtually NO online EMT Program can accept federal tuition assistance (ex. GI Bill, FAFSA, Stafford Loan).

    Not all schools are fully accredited! Be sure to check with CAAHEP to verify that your school of choice has a Nationally Accredited program. ** Link to CAAHEP accredited schools => **

    Something else to be on the lookout for when checking out schools are monthly specials - (hint hint). Very few online schools do this, and with the right timing could save you a few hundred dollars in training costs.

    Broaden your skill set with an EMT certification in less than 6 months, and max your resume with a Paramedic certification in less than 2 years! Become the Full Package Fire Fighter you were born to be, and start an EMT program today!!

      Guess it is pretty obvious.. I am the Director of Admissions for the school, and no extra money for marketing unfortunately. I didn't see the disclaimer until after I had posted this, but I decided to leave it and wait for moderation. However, this post may be heavily modified in the very near future.
