  • Who May Apply: US Citizens

    In order to qualify, you must meet the education and/or experience requirements described below. Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community; student; social). You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. Your resume must clearly describe your relevant experience; if qualifying based on education, your transcripts will be required as part of your application. Additional information about transcripts is in this document.

    Specialized Experience: To qualify based on your work experience, your resume must describe at least one year of experience which prepared you to do the work in this job. Specialized experience involves work such as: performing arterial blood gas draw and analysis; settomg up, operating, and maintaining ventilator equipment; administering nebulizer medication treatment; and assisting with bronchoscopy.
    This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-07).

    OR

    Education Substitution for Specialized Experience: Applicants may substitute education for the required experience (listed above) if they have at least one and a half years (27 semester hours) of graduate education that is directly related to the work of the position, in fields such as, Respiratory Therapy or Respiratory Care. Note: If you are using education to qualify, you must upload a copy of your transcripts with your application package showing you meet the education requirement.

    OR

    Combination of Experience and Education Substitution for Specialized Experience: If you have some, but not all, of the experience or education described above, you may still qualify by combining the amount of creditable experience and education that you possess. To compute the percentage, divide your total months of qualifying experience by 12. Then divide your semester hours of graduate education above 1 year (18 semester hours) by 9. Add the two percentages. The total percentage must equal at least 100 percent to qualify. Note: If you are using education to qualify in any way, you must upload a copy of your transcripts with your application package.

    NOTE: Graduate from an AMA approved program by the National Board of Respiratory Care in Respiratory Therapy and a license as a Respiratory Therapist is preferred/recommended but not required for referral purposes. If you have either or both of these, please address it on your resume.

    FOREIGN EDUCATION: If you are using education completed in foreign colleges or universities to meet the qualification requirements, you must show the education credentials have been evaluated by a private organization that specializes in interpretation of foreign education programs and such education has been deemed equivalent to that gained in an accredited U.S. education program; or full credit has been given for the courses at a U.S. accredited college or university.
