Last night I took the NJ State certification exam, and to be honest, I found it easier than the class final.
75 hopeful future EMT's were given up to 2 hours to complete 100 multiple choice questions, which spanned the entire gamut of course materials from operations to anatomy, pediatrics to geriatrics, medical injuries to trauma care.
So I was either really well prepared or clueless.
Results can come in as little as 48 hours, although the State only promises "3 to 6 weeks".
My wife asked me this morning if I was relieved it was all over, to which I snorted and responded, "This isn't the end of the journey, it's just the start."
Now I'm just waiting to hear the word "Go!"...
