I'm applying for my EMT-B course now and since I won't be 18 until mid September I need a parental consent letter. It says nowhere on the website for my local medical center how to write out one of these.

Anyone know? Or should I call/email/mail the hospital instead?

Easy. Make your parent write out on a piece of paper:

"I hereby consent my son jefgreen to take the EMT-B course offered at _______ Medical Center. Signature."

If the medical center wants more information, just rewrite the letter with the additional information.

If you're not 18 by the time of registration, you need to have your parent/guardian write you a letter.

I mean, I'll be 18 in mid september but by that time, class would have already started.

In NJ and eight other states you can get the EMT-B at age 16.

I would just call them to make sure. They probably have a standard form you parent just signs.

Congrats Jeff on deciding to take an EMT-B course. I took the course and was a volunteer EMT for the town where my high school was located and it was a very rewarding experience. Good luck.
