CONTOMS vs. Other TacMed Programs
I really want to get my EMT-T. I dont know much about CONTOMS including how I go about applying or if I need to wait until I enlist (USPHS) to take the course. I would appreciate any and all input. Its not necessarily the CUF training that I am interested in (though I would like to have that under my belt) as it is the higher speed EMS training that will help make me a better BLS Specialist. Right now I am an EMT-B/BLSS with IMERT, IL-Task Force 1 (Urban Search and Rescue) and the Illinois Terrorism Task Force. IMERT supplies the medical teams for the other two. The ITTF is where I really feel like EMT-T would be a good thing to have. If anyone knows the best place to go if I dont get into CONTOMS...again, I would greatly appreciate it. Feel free to PM me. Also, if I get my EMT-T, I have the chance to work with a private security contractor who is in charge of guarding most of the Section 8 Federal housing in Northern IL, so learning to handle a MP-5 and Springfield XD or equivalent wouldnt be a bad thing.
Feel free to pile on the info.
