January 10, 2023

Did you know that a Certificate of Proficiency (CP) in Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) only takes one semester? EMT graduates are ready to enter an in-demand career field! Spring semester classes are enrolling now. Classes begin Jan. 17.

UA – Pulaski Tech’s Emergency Medical Science program offers the six-credit-hour course Monday/Wednesday during daytime hours on the Main Campus in North Little Rock, or Tuesday/Thursday during evening hours at the Little Rock – South site at 13000 I-30 Frontage Road in Little Rock.

EMT training qualifies graduates for jobs at local Fire Departments, ambulance services and hospitals. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, hourly pay starts at $17.76 per hour and yearly salaries start at $36,930 per year. The CP is a “stackable” credential, meaning you can go straight to work. In addition, your education can be combined with other credentials to increase your employability and earning power.
