Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) --06/06/2011 -- Universal Careers wants to make sure that its students receive help in achieving their success.
The EMT/paramedic training school is offering its students the opportunity to take sample quizzes online. Students can assess their skills and knowledge against practice assessments for national training.
Universal Careers has been offering students an opportunity to train with experienced EMT/paramedic instructors in state-of-the-art classes since 2005. Students work with actual medical equipment and travel to emergency rooms and hospitals, rather than remaining in traditional classrooms. And graduates are able to certify as EMTs in as little as 14 days through and intensive program.
In addition, Universal Careers offers graduates extensive and aggressive job placement assistance using UC's database of clients and graduates.
“Universal Careers has a reputation for helping our students achieve success,” said Kevin Simpson, program manager for Universal Careers. “One of our strengths has been our online program, so offering these quizzes helps our students see what skills are necessary for the Emergency Medical Services field.”
“The quizzes help me focus,” said UC student Len Jacobs. “I can take what I'm learning form the paramedic instructors and figure out how it works in what I'm supposed to know for certification. Plus I learn better from nontraditional methods, so UC and the online prep really helps me.”
Universal Careers offers programs for new EMTs and professionals who want to update their skills. With a projected growth of 9% over the next decade, the Emergency Medical Services field is one of the most in-demand fields right now.
