Has anyone taken an EMT course? I’m debating on switching up careers, again, to becoming a paramedic. I’ve got a few questions about being a student. Would love to to DM the questions and talk through parts of EMT school. Also if someone works for a 3 letter agency, I’ve got questions about medic careers and requirements within those agencies. Info is somewhat sparse on that from what I can find with my google-fu skills.
That would be awesome! I’m planning on EMT to get on an ambulance, and if I like it, then start paramedic school. Both are offered by a good medical school just north of me with the same instructors. And I know EMT can be great or awful depending on employer and location, but I’m more worried about if I have the mental fortitude to poke people or perform under the pressure of affecting someone’s life even if It’s not a life or death situation. I think I do and can based off of other jobs I’ve worked, but it was under the pressure of millions of dollars at stake, not someone’s life or well being. Two completely different things and I’d rather dip my toes in with EMT before going to Paramedic school. And I know I don’t get to poke people as an EMT, but it’ll help let me guage myself.
