There are paramedic training programs all over the state of Kansas 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 Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services, which 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.
There are three levels of emergency medical technician / paramedic in Kansas. In order to become a full paramedic, one must have already been approved as an EMT B (basic) or EMT I. This requires passage of the NREMT (national registry of emergency medical technicians) exam, along with passing a special state mandated and developed practical exam. The practical will test your expertise in field medicine. You must also pass a state approved course.
