Working for BUEMS Operations
Currently we have over
50 EMTs on our staff; all are certified as Emergency
Medical Technicians in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. These staff members provide first response coverage in
the Fitness and Recreation Center and at the Case Athletic Center
to cover recreational, intramural, club sport, and credit
and non-credit class activities. In addition to these shifts,
BUEMS staff cover all events at the Agganis Arena including
varsity events, concerts and shows, as well as at special
events both on and off campus. The pay for the position
starts at $10.25/hr and you earn a $0.15 merit increase for
each semester that you work and a $0.10 increase for each
summer that you work. Special events such as those at Agganis
Arena pay $13/hr.
BUEMS also has an
educational component which offers continuing education classes
at least once a month. Among these classes there are mandatory in-service trainings for staff members. You will receive Massachusetts
continuing education credit and be paid for in-services.
You must be a full time student to work for BUEMS operations, work at least one shift a month and attend our in-service staff trainings.
Other benefits offered
to staff members include the opportunity to take our CPR and First Aid Instructor
classes offered every semester and the opportunity to assist in
instructing lab sessions for the EMT class on campus.
Instructors are paid $12.00/hr once they have completed their internship period and have been approved to teach
on their own.
If you are not certified
in MA we can be of assistance in explaining the reciprocity
process to you and we can provide the necessary paperwork
as well. You can also find this information at the web site:
Massachusetts Office of Emergency Medical Forms.
Massachusetts is one of only a handful of states that
do not accept the National Registry EMT certification, but
most students with an out-of-state EMT certification will
only have to take the computerized Massachusetts exam after
filing some paperwork and paying a fee to the state.

in employment with BUEMS, please e-mail email@example.com. We currently have openings
