I just completed my paramedic program and passed the NR test. I should be getting my license in the next month or so. Im disappointed in myself that i have an accident on my record and and 2 tickets, one which is NOT a point but still looks bad when looking at my print out from the DMV. I just turned 20 and most companies do not hire if your under 21, so by that time the accident will be cleared for the "36 months" that all ems companies are concerned about. my question is what can i do in the "down" time other than just waiting. I cannot even get hired as an emt with my record. Im afraid that ill forget how to be a medic, or perform poorly out in the field once things clear up. has anyone had this situation before? any advice or input is appreciated. The tickets and the accident are the cause of being a teenager, and unfortunately i pay of them now.
