Okay, so I took the test for Chicao FD in May, and am currently in that waiting game.
The more I think about making a career change, the more motivated I become in that I have started doing research regarding paramedic certification programs.
I've found one at a local community college, and have begun the process to begin taking classes as soon as possible. I think it's Spring.
I've decided that I would be happy with a career as a firefighter or a paramedic.
I'm wondering about the process after finishing a paramedic program at community college.
I understand that there are private companies and everything. But is the proces just the same as far as hiring lists and testing goes?
Or can I apply to private ambulance companies, hospitals, etc. upon completion?
Also understand that I haven't talked to anyone from the college yet regarding landing a position after finishing up. I just figured I'd start here since many of you are on the job already.
