Once you complete your EMT class, you can take two tests administered by your state (one written test and one hands-on test) to become licensed to work as an EMT in your state. Once you've passed those, your ready to work as an EMT!
There are two main types of EMT jobs: 911 services, and interfacility-transfer services (or IFT). 911 services respond to 911 calls, usually for life-threatening emergencies. Interfacility-transfer services perform scheduled transfers for patients between two medical facilities. Those usually aren't emergencies because the transfers are planned in advance. This could mean taking someone from one hospital to another or from a nursing home to the hospital.
