    I going to be taking a EMT course at a fire station this summer. I should get a job as an emergency medical technician-basic when I done.

    Has anybody ever taking the course before? Is anybody an EMT/Paramedic?

    Good for you! :smile: I'm sure you will do well. :cool: Blood makes me queasy and I'm kind of a germaphobe so I'm pretty sure that's not the career for me. :redface:

    Thanx njqt466!

    I'm gonna try do this full time while I finish my last year in college. Even though I hear the hours are crazy, the money is ok and its a great thing to put on a med-school application.

    it's known as a fast-burnout job. EMTs seem to quit within 18 months or last forever.

    a friend became an EMT, then a paramedic, and then an emergency medicine M.D. very few do what he did. he was VERY motivated.

    GO FOR IT!
