I have been thinking about my future employment after finishing EMT-B training. In my research I have a found a number of possibilities, they include the obvious the local ambulance company, IFT's which there are a number hiring right now, ER Tech in two different hospitals, and two local casinos who hire EMT's. I plan to jump right into Medic school as soon as possible after my basic certification. I was wondering how or if, the different types of jobs would affect my required experience for Medic school. For example would working at an IFT facility be looked at as the necesary experience for medic school as would 911 ambulance service? Or is just experience enough to get into the schools? I have researched and have found no really definitive answers, the local Medic school just says experience working as an EMT either paid or volunteer. My preference would be either with a 911 ambulance service or an ER tech for my Basic experience. The EMT course I am taking currently is CAAHEP accredited, and I was told the Medic program will only be accepting students that have been trained through a program with that accreditation. I understand the program I am in is only the local training that has that accreditation. Any input? I have looked on the CA EMS website, and at the local college's addmission requirements, and the only thing I have found on experience is just that, must be currently employed as an EMT-B, and the state of CA says you must hold a current EMT-B cert. So given that information, I have to assume that work experience as long as it is EMT related is what is required. Is one type of experience better than another? Or is it just important to get some experience and move on to Medic school? I am currently enrolled in A&P, and Medical Terminology. I have also signed up for the EKG training and Phlebotomy for health care providers course. I Plan to take Biology and Psychology as well after I finish my EMT course. I am hoping these will give me an edge for Medic school acceptance as wel as finding a job.
