David’s Answer

I went, for four weeks. But it was 8 to 5 Monday through Friday. I looked at schools near Redwood City and there seems to be some similar. There are also, online classes. You want, to look, for classes that offer the National Registry. It’s not imperative, but it helps broaden your range of places to work. Google, basic EMT near Redwood City. You will see, West Coast EMT, San Mateo County and Project Heart Beat and several others. You will have to do emergency department rotations, ambulance, psychiatric and obstetric/gynecology. This is all the beginning process, of becoming a good paramedic. Just remember that! When you study, for tests, be sure to read each chapter twice, or even three times. That really helps. And just study twenty minutes at a time. Take a few off and come back. David George (Former Paramedic)
