EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) jobs are plentiful.
AFPD (Academy for Professional Development), certifies students to become an EMT. The main question the school receives is after I get my certification and pass the National Registry how do I go about obtain employment? The school is bound by the State of California to hold a certain employ ability rating after our students graduate. Part of the program students are required to complete their clinical hours. These hours are contracted by the school and multiple ambulatory entities to hospitals and other employers in EMS.

Below is an excerpt from the NREMT the The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians® (NREMT) provides National EMS Certification.
Emergency Medical Technicians provide out of hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. EMTs have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life threatening emergencies. Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response system, under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found on an ambulance. Emergency Medical Technicians are a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system. (From the: National EMS Scope of Practice Model).
