EMS Cadet - Field (January 2025 Academy)

Austin, TX

Medic-Field is a BLS credentialed position that works alongside an ALS credentialed provider (EMS Clinical Specialist-Field or Captain-Field). A Medic-Field can be certified at the EMT-Basic, Advanced-EMT (AEMT), EMT-Paramedic, or Licensed Paramedic level. They have the opportunity to perform both basic and a limited number of advanced procedures such as: i-gel airway placement, nebulized medication administration, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and 12 Lead ECG acquisitions. Once credentialed in the field, AEMTs and Paramedics are allowed to work at the advance provider levels after successfully completing skills assessments.

 

All Field Cadets hired will be credentialed at the Basic Life Support (BLS) level (no matter the level of EMT- certification). A Cadet-Field will attend 12 weeks of paid training at the Academy. Upon graduation, cadets are placed in the position of Medic at which time they will be paid at the Medic-Field rate on a 42 hour work week. All Medics will be individually assigned to a Field Training Officer or Captain for approximately 4 to 6 months of training. At the successful completion of training, the Medic will be credentialed by the Medical Director to practice at the BLS level. Once credentialed, advanced providers (AEMT, EMT-P, or LP) at the Medic level can provide advanced care after successful skills testing. Newly hired Cadets are considered “at will” employees until the completion of a 12 month probationary period starting from the date of hire.
