Become a Paramedic

March 12, 2012 By: ElizabethK Category: Types of degrees Comments Off

College Major Spotlight: Become a Paramedic

What do paramedics do?
Paramedics respond to 911 calls. They may work for a hospital or with a private ambulance company. Paramedics are trained to assess a patient’s condition and perform medical procedures to ensure the patient is breathing. They may also perform other medical procedures like cardiopulmonary resuscitation, defibrillation and the splinting of bone fractures.

Do you have what it takes to become a paramedic?
Paramedics must be able to stay calm in very stressful situations. They must always be prepared to jump into action within seconds of getting a call. Paramedics need to be physically fit, have good dexterity and agility, and be able to handle high levels of stress.

Do you need a degree to become a paramedic?
Many people in the industry graduate from paramedic college with a certificate. Certification to become a paramedic can sometimes be acquired at community colleges and hospitals. Different states have different qualifications for paramedic degrees and programs.

Job outlook for paramedics:
There are some career paths that never go out of style, no matter what the economy is like.Employment for paramedics and other emergency medical services professionals is expected to increase steadily through 2016. Job prospects are good, particularly in cities and with private ambulance services.

Salaries for Paramedics:
The salary for paramedics depends on what emergency medical duties are performed. For example, a lower level EMT is going to earn less than a Paramedic who is on the crew of an air ambulance. It also depends on where you’re employed. New York City currently offers paramedics hourly wages of $11.88 to $23.85 while a Los Angeles EMT would make between $8.94 and $11.53.

Law Enforcement Programs

March 12, 2012 By: ElizabethK Category: Types of degrees Comments Off

College Major Spotlight:  Law Enforcement Programs

What is law enforcement?
Law enforcement programs train individuals to enforce laws in a variety of settings, including local, state and federal levels.  Training for law enforcement programs typically includes classroom instruction in constitutional law and civil rights, State laws and local ordinances, and accident investigation. Recruits also receive training and supervised experience in patrol, traffic control, the use of firearms, self-defense, first aid, and emergency response.  Law enforcement officers, some of whom are State or Federal special agents or inspectors, perform these duties in a variety of ways depending on the size and type of their organization. In most jurisdictions, they are expected to exercise authority when necessary, whether on or off duty.

What do people who graduate from Law Enforcement Programs do?
People depend on law enforcement officers to protect their lives and property.

Police and detectives pursue and apprehend individuals who break the law and then issue citations or give warnings. A large proportion of their time is spent writing reports and maintaining records of incidents they encounter. Most police officers patrol their jurisdictions and investigate any suspicious activity they notice. Detectives, who are often called agents or special agents, perform investigative duties such as gathering facts and collecting evidence.

The daily activities of police and detectives differ depending on their occupational specialty—such as police officer, game warden, or detective—and whether they are working for a local, State, or Federal agency. Duties also differ substantially among various Federal agencies, which enforce different aspects of the law. Regardless of job duties or location, police officers and detectives at all levels must write reports and maintain meticulous records that will be needed if they testify in court.

The Federal Government works in many areas of law enforcement. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents are the Government’s principal investigators, responsible for investigating violations of more than 200 categories of Federal law and conducting sensitive national security investigations. Agents may conduct surveillance, monitor court-authorized wiretaps, examine business records, investigate white-collar crime, or participate in sensitive undercover assignments. The FBI investigates a wide range of criminal activity, including organized crime, public corruption, financial crime, bank robbery, kidnapping, terrorism, espionage, drug trafficking, and cyber crime.

There are many other Federal agencies that enforce particular types of laws. U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents enforce laws and regulations relating to illegal drugs. U.S. marshals and deputy marshals protect the Federal courts and ensure the effective operation of the judicial system. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives agents enforce and investigate violations of Federal firearms and explosives laws, as well as Federal alcohol and tobacco tax regulations.

Job outlook for graduates of law enforcement programs:
Job opportunities in most local police departments will be excellent for qualified individuals, while competition is expected for jobs in State and Federal agencies. Average employment growth is expected.  Employment of police and detectives is expected to grow 11 percent over the 2006-16 decade, about as fast as the average for all occupations. A more security-conscious society and population growth will contribute to the increasing demand for police services.

Police and sheriff’s patrol officers had median annual earnings of $47,460 in May 2006. The middle 50 percent earned between $35,600 and $59,880. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $27,310, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $72,450. Median annual earnings were $43,510 in Federal Government, $52,540 in State government, and $47,190 in local government.

In May 2006, median annual earnings of police and detective supervisors were $69,310. The middle 50 percent earned between $53,900 and $83,940. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $41,260, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $104,410. Median annual earnings were $85,170 in Federal Government, $68,990 in State government, and $68,670 in local government.

In May 2006, median annual earnings of detectives and criminal investigators were $58,260. The middle 50 percent earned between $43,920 and $76,350. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $34,480, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $92,590. Median annual earnings were $69,510 in Federal Government, $49,370 in State government, and $52,520 in local government.

Federal law provides special salary rates to Federal employees who serve in law enforcement.

What type of law enforcement program should you consider?
Applicants usually must have at least a high school education, and some departments require 1 or 2 years of college coursework or, in some cases, a college degree. Law enforcement agencies encourage applicants to take courses or training related to law enforcement subjects after high school. Many entry-level applicants for police jobs have completed some formal postsecondary education, and a significant number are college graduates. Many junior colleges, colleges, and universities offer programs in law enforcement or administration of justice.
