I've noticed there are a few people who stay at the emt basic level for years. I worked with an emt who has been an emt basic for 20 years. I'm just curious as to why some people are content with staying at the emt level? There's nothing wrong with it in my eyes. It just looks like everybody works as an emt for a year and jumps into medic school or jumps into medic school right after emt.
