What Are The Job Requirements For Paramedic?

Every single job requires something a little different, and it’s highly dependent upon the EMS level you’re attempting to apply.

For example, if you’re seeking a job as a Basic Ambulance Assistant, you may need an HCT certificate (HIV Counseling and Testing) certificate, a Certificate in Audiometry and Spirometry, and some experience in the occupational health field.

Conversely, if you want to become an ECT, you’ll not only need to have great interpersonal skills and be a strong communicator, but you’ll need to provide proof of your HPCSA ECT professional registration, along with a valid EB driver’s license (light motor vehicle) with PDP (Professional Driving Permit).
