Well in Illinois EMT-B is fairly common. You know doing all the life saving stuff without pushing Meds. It's about 3 months and most of my Firefighter buddies knocked it out in a summer without much effort.

EMT-P in Illinois is a 9 month process and much more complex. You become a full fledged paramedic, but it also does include a certain number of calls, clinical hours, and you have to see a certain number of procedures during your clinical's such as 3 deliveries. The course in itself is about $3,500 more or less depending on program you take.

I am thinking about EMT-B as a summer thing next year to help me stand out more as a teacher. Kids do crazy things when your not looking.

I think if your planning on it being a big portion of your life I would go for the Paramedic.
