Emergency Medical Technician Training in Essington, PA

Train to Become an EMT at All-State Career School

If you live in the metro Philadelphia, PA area and want a career in EMS (emergency medical services) then you should consider enrolling at All-State Career School in Essington, PA.  Working in emergency medicine is an extremely fulfilling career for those drawn to caring for others in their time of need. Emergency tech training is a great springboard to becoming a paramedic, a nurse, or any of a number of healthcare professions. In our EMT training program in Essington, PA, students will get an education that teaches the skills required for emergency medical positions.  EMTs do many important things such as transporting patients in ambulances or via air-evacuation, caring for children, the elderly, and others as they are rescued from traffic accidents, fires, floods, or other natural disasters.  People’s lives often depend on the quick reaction and compassionate care of those who serve their communities by becoming EMTs.

Committed Students Learn at All-State’s EMT Facility

If you are drawn to working in emergency medicine, it is probably because caring for people in their time of need or desperation is something that truly motivates you. Get your training at All-State, where you will learn on industry-standard technology – the same types of equipment you will operate in the field when administering care on-site or during transport. 

Knowing how to operate machines is critical, but knowing how to address hands-on situations coolly, coherently and articulately is imperative when providing quality care. CPR, dressing and bandaging wounds, and transporting patients are all things you will learn but, just as importantly, you will also be taught how to remain calm and interact with coworkers and patients clearly and accurately.

Learning Compassionate Communication

Calmly addressing anxiety, fears, and pain with “hurt but alert” patients, or reassuring loved ones of unconscious patients, are critical ways you can connect to those you serve with empathy. All-State instructors will help you understand how to effectively do this in a way that also reduces your stress when you have to remain cool and collected in serious situations of life and death.
