 I would personally recommend just going ahead and get your medic.

Speaking as a medic who was AEMT first, its totally worth it. Out of all the students in our class the 3 who were already AEMTs consistently scored better on tests than the EMTBs.. could've been a fluke, but could've been something. Personally I felt more knowledgeable. Especially when it came to cardiac,.

Hey..all good answers here! The best advice I can give you is on timing and end result. If you have time, then taking the longer root of becoming an EMT first will help give you a better foundation. You'll get use to the career and what's expected. Keep in mind becoming a paramedic does require some more work so just make sure you are use to the material and have experience which will help you understand what's required. This can lighten and ease the transition from a EMT to a Medic. Hope this help!

 I'm pretty well convinced on medic school. I want to be on an ALS truck and make a career so medic is sounding my best option.
