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 two 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.


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.
