PARAMEDIC TESTING – NREMT (National Registry of EMTs)

  • NREMT – Registration and exam dates for paramedic written (cognitive) and practical (psychomotor) exams.
  • NREMT Paramedic Handbook [PDF]
  • Pearson Vue – Test centers for paramedic written exams, practice tests, and guides to the computer-based exams.
  • NREMT Recertification and NREMT’s NCCP (National Continued Competency Program)
  • All Nationally Certified EMS personnel due to recertify in 2019, or after, are required to utilize the NCCP. For information see FAQ’s or NREMT’s Fact Sheet.
  • 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.
