How Can I become an EMT?
High school graduate looking for a paramedic or EMT kind of career but I have no clue how to get started. I know there are programs but how can I join? Does it cost money to get these classes? How long does it take to become certified? I've heard that different states have different requests so Im looking for one that is in New Jersey if that helps?
