Job Description

American Professional Ambulance, located in Van Nuys, California was established in 2002 with the goal of taking care of our community. We are a dedicated, professional customer service oriented group of health care professionals looking to deliver the most compassionate patient care to our customers.

With over 80% of our calls being transports to the Emergency Room, the field experience you will gain with APA cannot be matched. APA provides BLS, ALS and Critical Care Transportation in both Los Angeles and Orange County. These opportunities will provide you with the best exposure and experience as an Emergency Medical Technician.

At APA, we take pride in promoting the advancement of our employee's career goals. If you are pursing a career with the Fire Department, Paramedic School, a Nursing Program, or Medical School, the real-world experience and exposure you will receive as a member of the APA family will give you the competitive edge you need. Our leadership understands these goals and will do everything they can to support you along your career path.

Our onsite training program ensures all new EMT's receive top notch training in basic skills, documentation, customer service and professionalism. APA understands that the responsibility of operating a large ambulance can be intimidating and we understand this. We make sure that you are training and comfortable operating our ambulances safely by providing extensive driver training in a program separate from our orientation program. Our experience shows that EMT's are more successful when they are given time to train and practice their skills. We also provide instructor based Continuing Education and Annual Skills Competency Verification in order to make recertification easy for you.

We offer a variety of shifts including 24 hour shifts and 10 hour shifts, days, nights and weekends, making this an excellent place to work while going to school or pursuing other passions.

American Professional Ambulance is eager to hear from you and hopeful for the opportunity to welcome you into the APA family. Be the EMT you trained to be with your experience at APA!
