I decided to study for and take the NREMT exam – the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians – while the information was still fresh in my brain. Having this credential allows me to be more mobile with my certification if needed (if we ever relocate). In NYS it is kind of a mixed bag … it seems that it is recognized at many agencies but not at others. It seems that the agency I am with now is not one of those.
This is something that I will have to explore. I think it is good to have. I took advantage of the timeframe and the freshness of the information and it paid off. I took the test on 10 Sept 12 and had my results online within hours. Nothing like the 5-6 week NYS wait.
I love doing the volunteer EMT thing … it’s been a great opportunity and a wonderful learning experience. Can’t beat that!
