Does an EMS pilot that has received medical training have a competitive advantage over those that haven't?
Do organizations want pilots that are dual trained?
What are the risks involved?
Can they do both jobs, or does there need to be separation between the two?
“…some companies prefer you not to have medical training, because your job is a pilot, not a paramedic, and they don't want you trying to perform medical tasks and fly at the same time”
“The only EMS pilot I know happens to also be a paramedic. His opinion is that his being a paramedic wasnota requirement but it separated him in a stack of resumes for the same EMS job. Basically, it will never hurt to be medically trained, even if you will never use it”
