They have Ambulance Driver's Handbooks? I'll have to pick one up next time I'm in town.

They do in California! Don't know about the other states though.

I just finished the EMT-B class the begining of march and now I'm stuck waiting to take the national test because washington state switched over from a state test to the national test and none of our instrutors or program directors know what's goin on. I belive I'll be the first to take the test out of my class. Kinda nervous but all should be well. I've been doing ride alongs since the middle of january....

so, last saturday we had our testing for the county practicals. We had to test on three stations which were trauma, medical, and cpr. What really sucked was when one of the other groups had to do trauma because the instructer that was acting to be a trauma patient ended up going into an actual diabetic emergency. When they were keeping the patient talking, he was starting to have an altered mental status which made them question, is he for legit or...? lol so in a bunch of instructers rushed and we actually got to see how it is really done in a real scenario. he made a full recovery, but it was really cool to see the emts at work and demostrated in a real scenario.

Do not let the national scare you. Its a simple test if you read all the questions through, never second guess yourself, and always remember A B C 's. No matter what is going on you will always check your A B C 's. Also study your cpr and choking. Go in there with a good attitude and y'all shall do good.

I am 41 and just got my EMT-B. Yes I was the oldest in my class.
I was in dire need of a career change and wanted to challenge myself, I loved my course...planning to enter Paramedic school when I get my finances in order.

Maybe you should get some time on the box before jumping to medic, Sometimes its not for everyone. Congrats on your emt-b. I wish the best of luck with your career!

The oldest person in my EMT-B class is 47. He decided it was a time to change careers too.

I'm currently in EMT class and I love it. I've gotten to help out so many different people and there's nothing better than the patient or patient's relatives shake your hand and say thank you or to see a smile on the patient's face.

I have my Practical Exams next week so I'm getting ready for them. My problem is that I second think the questions too much and go into too much detail and just don't go with my first thought. There has been a lot of times when I've selected the right answer first and then changed it because I think "What if...".

Good luck to all of you!
