      Sorry man just seen this. Yes, there is a height weight requirement. I cant find the paper from orientation but i'm 6'0 and I had to weigh under 227 at the physical. This is really one of the big things that pushes guys/girls from the process.

      Also, we just finished our second tour (4 on 4 off) at the academy. It is alot of stuff in the beginning. Start getting in shape now alot of pushups and leg lift/6inches for abs we seem to do. We've done some cadence runs which arent fast paced but we did a 3.5 mile run the other day.

          Thanks for getting back to me with the reply. Goodluck to you throughout the academy. And if you come across that piece of paper from orientation in regards to height/weight that would be great. But don’t go crazy looking for it.

                  Jon, im currently in now. Prehospital emergency care 11th edition is the book. Id highly consider dowbloadong it and getting a junp on the reading. Def. Chapt 7 and 8. Anatomy/pathophysiology.

                  the ems course moves super fast. Heres an example of how it works. We have a lecture on chapter 3 and 4 in class. Go home read chapt 5 and 6, dp the honework for 5 and 6, than do the quiz for chapt 3 and 4. It repeats like this each day and its all done on "my brady lab" they know if yoy did the work or not. If someone doesnt the whole class gets taken outside and "smoked" (pretty much extra PT)

                  atleast for ems youll be in class all day than pretty much doing homework,reading and quizes ubtil late at night

                      Thats the sitiation im in. Currently an EMT. We still have to take and pass all 9 Mod exams amd a final. We are not required to do skills or the Natl registry EMT.

                      whats tough is how fast the course moves. Theres pretty much an exam every week covering 4 to 5 chapters.

                              Is this the isbn? ISBN-13: 978-0134704456, and is it a white book with an accident scene on the front and blue lettering? Just want to make sure i get the right one. Want to have it on kindle, so when they issue the hard copies, i will at least have it on my tablet as well.
