Thanks! and Good Luck to you!!!

It felt pretty intense to me... It was my first EMT interview though.

The written was first. If you didn't pass that you walked.
It was 50 questions, you have to pass with 80% (so you are allowed
to miss ten) Two people didn't pass.

Next was Oral or Skills portion. They called you back. For the Oral, there was a panel of three people and it was scored by points, they wanted to know how you handled situations at work or at school or at home, they wanted thorough answers. They were all very nice.

The skills were: Airway: O.P.A., N.P.A., Suctioning, B.V.M., Bleeding control, Tourniquet, Splint, Shock stations. We got a sheet to go over what they were looking for but if you can't ask any questions regarding it.

I heard it's overall PASS or FAIL. They don't tell you your results.

They said we will find out in a week by E-Mail.
I hope this helps!

I always hate the waiting game, I'm trying to get one with one of the County Fire/EMS agencies in my area and the waiting game drives me crazy... Good luck :D

I'm just starting the process. I go for written testing this weekend, but it was over a month from the time I applied to the time I was contacted about written, and I'm sure it will be another month between written and physical agility testing.
