PARAMEDIC LICENSURE

 

Changes are coming to NREMT’s ALS Psychomotor Examination!

Visit NREMT’s Key Initiatives page to learn more.

The National Registry of EMTs is seeking certified Paramedics to participate in a process to establish the standard (cut score) for the redesigned Paramedic examination. The purpose of this workshop is to decide on a passing score for the Paramedic examination. 

During the 2-day workshop, to be held at National Registry offices in Columbus, OH, on February 22-23, we will work together to review and rate the difficulty of the questions for the exam’s defined domains and objectives. The deliverables from this workshop will be used to determine the final passing score for the exam.

This workshop will consist of training on the methodology to be applied, independent item review and rating, and group discussion.  Interested participants must be able to commit to attending the session in its entirety.

To indicate your interest and availability, please complete this survey here.
