While still in high school, interested students should take
courses in health and science, driver education, and English. To be
admitted to a basic training program, applicants usually must be at
least 18 years old and have a high school diploma and valid
driver's license. Exact requirements vary slightly between states
and training courses. Many EMTs first become interested in the
field while in the U.S. Armed Forces, where they may have received
training as medics.
