The minimum requirements are a High School diploma or GED.  Emergency  Medical Technician (EMT) License is preferred.

All candidates will have to pass a written examination, provide a valid State  of Michigan Drivers License, and provide proof of successful completion of the  Candidate Physical Abilities Test (CPAT).
