There are EMT training programs all over the state of Delaware which specialize in teaching how to treat injuries or other medical emergencies for transport and stabilization to more central care centers. These training courses are regulated by the Delaware Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS), who is also in charge of all emergency medical technicians and paramedics. EMTs and Paramedics across the state are comprised of a number of paid and volunteer positions.
After being employed by an ALS group, a person wishing to become a paramedic must apply for certification. The qualifications for certification include passage of the NREMT, basic cardiac life support, advanced cardiac life support, pediatric life support, and prehospital trauma support. Recertification is required every two years.
