Choosing to become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) is not a simple decision. It is a demanding but very rewarding profession. At minimum, most states require candidates to have a high school degree or GED, be least 18 years of age, free of illicit substance use and maintain a good driving record. If you have an interest in helping people and thrive in high-intensity situations, a career in Emergency Medical Services may be for you. More general information regarding EMS may be found at www.ems.gov or www.naemt.org.
If you decide to become an EMT, you must meet the criteria set forth by the State where you would like to be certified. Information for Massachusetts EMT certification may be found at www.mass.gov/dph/oems. New Hampshire EMT information may be found at www.nh.gov/safety/divisions/fstems/ems.
