    Is it worth it to take this test if I only have my EMT cert?

    I'll answer your question with a questions.

    Why would it not be worth it as an EMT? There are a number of reasons to take the DRCOG if you're not a Medic.

    I was under the impression that most of the depts that hire off of that list look for EMTs.

    Have you heard otherwise?

    Did you mean most depts. hire medics?

    That may be the case, but why would you sell yourself short by not even taking the test? It seems like a no-brainer to me.

    Also, there are DRCOG depts. that are BLS agencies and probably are looking for EMT's.

    I have to fly out there from TN to take the test, so its somewhat of a financial investment. And I will have my EMT done by June, but I just remember someone telling me when I took it last June that it wouldn't be worth my while.
