    Hawaii licensure

    So I have not heard back from anyone yet, ie my teacher on filling out reciprocity paperwork nor the state reciprocity number. I am headed out in July, can anyone recommend any cert classes I could take to make myself stand out? Maybe an AHA EKG/pharmacology course? Would it be worth it? They...

    Hawaii licensure

    As I keep researching I keep coming up with more and more questions. Can someone give me the run down of the fire-ems merger? And is it true that honolulu FD are only basics and they don't even have medic/mict and leave it to honolulu ems?

    btw, expat, the state reciprocity for HI on the NR website doesn't load for me. If you are able to view what it says could you post a screen shot perhaps? or even email it to me?

    How often do you workout?

    Gotta stay fit in our field. I recommend HIIT programs, awesome high intensity stuff that gets you in and out of the gym fast, but still effective workouts.

    Hey all, did a search and didn't find the specific answer I was looking for. Just recently completed my basic course at Foothill Community College, which is in Los Altos, CA, a two quarter course. Also just earned my NREMT-B. my course only required you to work two shifts with either ambulance...
