Careers in emergency medical services (EMS) start with the right educational program. Based in a sunny city southeast of Phoenix, Unitek EMT provides U.S. and international residents with an exceptional alternative for their EMT training needs. This accelerated program allows aspiring EMTs to pursue their dream careers without spending years in school. Over the course of 14 days, Jessica Gonzalez, Director of the EMT program, and her team of seasoned professionals equip students with the knowledge and skills they’ll need to save lives.
The cognitive NREMT exam is another important step toward becoming an emergency medical technician. It’s a national milestone that proves competency and ensures the safety of the public. During this computer adaptive test, candidates can expect to complete anywhere from 70 to 120 questions. The exam covers the entire spectrum of EMS care, including Airway, Respiration, and Ventilation; Cardiology and Resuscitation; Trauma; Medical; Obstetrics/Gynecology; and EMS Operations.
Given the importance of education, NREMT pass rates should be considered when choosing an EMT program. Arizona EMS Offices released the most recent pass rates from the fourth quarter of 2018 to the present. The national pass rate is currently 70%, while the Arizona state pass rate lies at 82%. Unitek EMT’s pass rates have exceeded both the national and state average. With a pass rate of 83%, the team at Unitek has demonstrated their dedication and commitment to excellence.
“We are thrilled to see our EMT students succeed,” said David Higley, Chief Marketing Officer at Unitek Learning, the parent company of Unitek EMT. “Our team cares greatly about providing the best education possible and preparing the next generation of EMTs. This past year has seen continual growth for Unitek EMT, especially in the Chandler area. We look forward to another year of success for all current and future students.”
For the past 12 years, Unitek EMT has provided aspiring emergency medical technicians with the training they needed to succeed. Up-to-date courses and boot camps equip graduates with the latest theory and technique for first-response treatment of patients. Taught by seasoned EMS professionals, the classes at Unitek EMT include real-world implementations, hands-on training, and one-on-one instruction to ensure students master the skills they’ll need to excel in the field.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of EMTs is expected to grow 15% by 2026, which is faster than the average for all occupations. Emergencies such as car crashes, natural disasters, and other medical events will continue to require the life-saving skills of EMTs across the country.
