EMT Disqualifications

Recommended Posts

I got adjudicated for a sex offense when I was 13. I haven't been registered since I was 21, I'm 24 now. Even though I'm not convicted does this still bar me from becoming an EMT.

If this is something that would show up on your criminal record I would think it would be difficult to become certified as an EMT. It might depend on your state, I would certainly contact your licensing agency before taking the class to see if it would prohibit you from getting licensed.

The next thing, if it's something that would show up on a background check, but you are able to become certified...I think it would be incredibly difficult to find employment as an EMT. I know I wouldn't pass your application up the chain knowing EMT's are a dime a dozen around here and most don't have a history of sex crimes.

Sex crimes as a 13 year old? 24 years old now? That's a lot of water under the bridge. Caution? Definitely. Full disclosure? Absolutely. But I wouldn't dismiss the guy out of hand without so much as a glance. I'd worry way more about the folks you don't know about.

his sex crime could be a benign as peeing in public and getting nailed by a cop and charged with indecent exposure.  That would give him a sex crime charge, which to me is just utter bullshit.  But there could be more to the history on this poster as well.  It could also be statutory rape as well by a 13 year old having sex with a 12 year old and getting caught and charged as well.  

Without more information from the OP, which I am NOT in any way asking for him to expand on his so called "crimes", we won't know for sure if he would be ineligible for hire at any of our services.  

So before we dismiss this guy out of hand for employment at any of our services, he would need to in his interview process with any service, explain the circumstances surrounding the sex crime.  

NOW caveat, if the sex crime involved a 3 year old or a 8 year old or what not, or it was forceable rape or any number of other crimes other than what I outlined in my first paragraph, then that is a WHOLE other panacea that would of course in my mind, EXCLUDE him from working with any job that my service would have.  Child porn is another.
