PARAMEDIC LICENSURE

 

The EMS Authority personnel are currently deployed to assist in the evacuation and treatment of patients during the declared statewide fire emergencies.

Although there may be delays in responses to phone calls and/or emails, all applications due to expire during the month of November remain our priority

In order to ensure timely processing of applications, we ask that you please remain patient in our response to inquiries other than those specific to applications due to expire this month.  Thank you.

California Volunteers for Current Disasters

We are pleased to announce our new, online paramedic licensure service for paramedic graduates and paramedics. The online system should be available in the winter of 2018.

Click Here to view our Fact Sheet for more information about our new, online paramedic licensure service.

Due to the convenience of online services, EMSA will no longer provide in-house Same Day Service for paramedic licensure after October 31, 2018. For more information, please contact the Paramedic Licensure Unit at paramedic@emsa.ca.gov.


The State of California requires all persons that provide paramedic level scope of practice emergency medical services to obtain a valid state issued paramedic license.

  • California has not adopted the NCCP model yet; therefore, the NREMT “Traditional” recertification model remains available for California paramedics.
  • If paramedics have more specific questions, they should view NREMT’s recertification information webpage or contact the NREMT directly at (614) 888-4484. They may also email the NREMT through their website.
