Available Positions



Paramedic and EMT Application Process

All applications will be reviewed for minimum qualifications and all EMT and paramedic applicants are required to take and pass an EMT-Basic or paramedic assessment. Candidates who are offered employment will be required to complete and pass a background check, pre-employment fitness test, drug screening, and occupational medicine testing before starting orientation. Orientation is held four times a year and all employees are required to complete four weeks of classroom orientation, followed by field training.

Out-of-State Paramedic Applicants

All out-of-state paramedic applicants must be eligible to obtain a temporary New Mexico paramedic license. Applicants are required to take and pass a paramedic assessment. If an applicant is selected for hire, the applicant will be required to submit a completed application to the NM EMS Bureau to obtain a temporary New Mexico paramedic license by start date. Candidates who are offered employment will be required to complete and pass a background check, pre-employment fitness test drug screening, and occupational medicine testing before starting orientation.

Orientation Process

AAS orientations are held six times a year. All EMTs and paramedics begin in a three-week classroom orientation, then team up with a field supervisor to train and work out in the field. After training and orientation, employees are partnered with another EMT or paramedic to work in the field. All new paramedics who clear the orientation period are assigned to a float pool that bids every month by seniority on shifts for the following month. All paramedics will be moved to permanent shifts as quickly as possible, with a maximum time of six months in the float pool.

Benefits

AAS offers an excellent compensation and benefits package. Relocation bonuses are available for out-of-area paramedics.

Benefits start on the first day of employment and are available for full-time and part-time employees. These include health, dental, vision, life insurance, long and short-term disability, and paid time off. We also have an employer contribution and matching program for retirement.

In addition, AAS is committed to the health and wellness of our employees. We currently have a 24/7 gym at the AAS base location, which includes personal trainer support and classes. Knowing that mental health is an important part of overall wellness, we provide access to a mental wellness app that can be accessed for support and resources 24/7, as well as two on-staff social workers to assist with any staff needs. We also recognize the need for support in the field, and we are committed to providing advanced equipment such as Stryker Power Hydraulic Gurneys in all ambulances and Zoll Patient Care Report, CAD and GPS technology for use on the job.

Paramedic Scholarship Program

This program is available for current AAS employees who are interested in becoming a paramedic. The AAS employee must have completed the required probationary period, be in good standing and have been accepted into an eligible paramedic program (currently eligible programs for scholarship are the CNM EMS Program or UNM EMSA). During your paramedic training, you will be paid your full-time salary but you will work part-time. Upon successful completion of the paramedic program, NREMT testing, and obtainment of a New Mexico paramedic license, you must agree to work for AAS for three years, or the equivalent of 6,240 hours.

Additionally, AAS also offers an EMT-Learner program. This is a nonsponsored program, targeted for EMTs currently in school. This program allows you to continue your schooling and work with AAS part-time, with flexible scheduling to accommodate your EMT course schedule.
