Our employee screening program, is designed to ensure the "right fit"

selection process uses a multiple-step approach for identifying applicants
most likely to succeed as EMTs. In a logical process, each of the steps
contributes specific information about the applicant. The system provides
an objective and comprehensive approach for selecting the most qualified
applicants for the job through the following activities:
- A standardized screening interview conducted by our Human Resources (HR) department
- A standardized application
- A realistic job preview
- Written and practical exercises
- Structured clinical and administrative oral interviews that assess
not only a candidate's training and clinical skills, but also his or her
motivational and interpersonal skills
- Reference and background checks. Before offering employment, our
HR staff conducts a thorough review of each applicant's background.
