    If you're nationally certified you get a SC license, simple as switching who you're affiliated with

    But I'm assuming that SC had different state protocols than VT does, right? For example, a friend of mine is certified in New Hampshire and can do far more advanced things with a basic license than I can. Is there any opportunity to bridge the gap?

    Do you mean as in our scope of practice? If so, in SC an EMT-B can drop King LT's and LMA's while other states that I know of cannot. Im not sure if this answers your question. Feel free to PM me.

    You will go through a quick protocols class before your graduation. Charleston is new to the EMS role so don't get too bent out of shape about it. If you're nationally certified you get your SC card and the department takes care of putting you through the necessary classes.

    Got mine as well... Does anyone know if and/or when we could find out our exact score on the written? Just curious to see how I did.

    50 out of 130. Much better odds than most career departments. I'll see you guys in December!

    Hey, did anyone hear anything yet about advancing to the next step. I know they said that we were going to find out yesterday (Thursday) but all I go was an email saying that they still have not gotten the results back from the interviews. I was hoping to hear something today but nothing. Not sure if no news is good news or if others heard that they have passed and they are still emailing those who have not. Thanks

    Looks like I spoke too soon. Just got the email saying that we need to take the Hobet test before January 10th. Has anyone ever taken this test before? Trying to register online to take the Hobet test from the link that she sent out but it says I need a pre-approval to do it. Anyone able to register that won't be able to go down to Charleston for the actual exam?

    Thanks again
