No Experience Necessary
Question by Vashbebop21: What is a good website to visit in order to find the average yearly income of medical professionals?
More specifically, I am going to be completing a program as an EMT-Basic this summer and was trying to figure out if I should continue schooling right away or not. If I do continue, it would be to become a Paramedic Specialist.
Answer by dreaminducedhaze
Paramedics make significantly more money than an EMT-Basic. I honestly don’t know how much additional schooling is required, but if you’re not strapped financially and in need of immediate income it would certainly benefit you to go the extended route.
Having said that, actual salary will vary depending on not only the state you’re in, but also in the county. I know in California bay area pay for these job is quite a bit more than, say, Sacramento county, El Dorado County, etc.
