Paramedics embody the highest level of certification offered by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians.
They are very important healthcare workers that bring advanced knowledge and life-saving equipment directly to the emergency scene to reduce suffering and loss of life. It is a demanding, sometimes hectic field of work that is full of challenges and reward. Paramedics are hired by fire departments, private ambulance providers, and in the industry sector.
The goal of our Paramedic Training Program at SUSLA is to produce competent, entry-level Paramedics to serve in career and volunteer positions in the Northwestern region of Louisiana and beyond.
Our program seeks to educate individuals with the desire to become Nationally Certified Paramedics through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) and earn a Technical Diploma in Emergency Medical Care. Candidates are prepared using knowledge derived from the biological sciences, physical sciences, behavioral sciences, and emergency medicine.
