Is a career school similar to a vocational or technical school?

Hassino probably knows more about this because he's the air crew guru but I'll give it a shot. Airborne emt appears to be a fair assessment, as for getting into the program after nearly an hour of googling I can't find anything. It's still on the BUPERS list as an available NEC so I don't think that it's been abolished as some forums would lead me to believe, but I can't say for sure. If it is an option and has open billets when you finish a school, the beginning of the pipeline will be on the list of orders your class gets to pick from. Otherwise, it could be similar to the SARC program where you get a brief and then talk to Chief Select Pell(that's who runs the SARC program at Fort Sam right now) afterwards about joining the pipeline. I'd recommend the Navy Deppers fb group of you want more information as there's at least two HMs that are fairly active.

I went through SERE with a SAR Corpsman who got orders out of HM School. From what he said, it sounds like the process is similar to what BloodyPhoenix described... you'll get a brief on the programs, and those interested would do special PT/PST type workouts with the group... if they liked you, you would e offered a spot. In addition to the medical training, you'll have to go through Naval Aircrew Candidate School and SERE.

If you have any questions on Patient Care Techs, shoot me a message as I currently am one.
