Are you allowed to ride before you become an EMT? You'd probably learn a lot about what EMTs do.My local volunteer ambulance next EMTB class starts in March. What should I do over the winter to make my learning experience better and be more prepared? I have taken BLS before and I am currently re-reading through that material for now.
Yes if you take a CPR or BLS class you can do a ride along(s). I did one like 10 years ago. I got a job flying private jets that took up all my time for awhile. My BLS is expired but maybe I should see if I can renew it and do some ride alongs in the meantime.Are you allowed to ride before you become an EMT? You'd probably learn a lot about what EMTs do.
That's cool. I took First Aid and I got CPR next week. I needed to renew them anyway. Apparently it doesn't get me a ride-along and they don't start until halfway through EMT class. Not that I would be much help, I get that, I was just hoping start doing more hands-on stuff or at least see how things work. Studying the books might be better use of my time, I just like to see what it looks like in the real world to go along with it.My job has us driving around before we can go through the educational aspect of EMT. I really liked the fact I get to be an EVO before EMT.
