What is the difference between an EMT and a Paramedic? It's all about education and training. EMTs can handle most of the basic health procedures like performing CPR and using oxygen on a patient. Paramedics can perform more complex procedures like inserting IV lines, administering drugs, and more.
The education programs for each profession are different because of this. Also, in Florida you must be an EMT before you can complete the paramedic certificate program.
Hodges University not only offers EMT training but offers paramedic courses as part of our ems programs. To learn more about our paramedic program click here .
