The EMT-Paramedic exam requires applicants to pass both a state approved psychomotor exam, as well as a national NREMT certification exam. Under the new 2014 NHTSA guidelines, the EMT-Paramedic certification level will be referred to as simply the Paramedic certification. Potential EMT candidates applying for an EMT-Paramedic certification must meet certain requirements. EMT-Paramedic candidates must be 18 years or older. EMT-Paramedic candidates must also have an EMT-Basic certification at the national or state level.
Candidates must also have completed a state-approved EMT-Paramedic course. The state EMT-paramedic course must meet or exceed the US Department of Transportation National Standard Curriculum for EMT-Paramedic. This EMT-Paramedic state course must have been successfully completed within the previous two years. Additionally, EMT-Paramedic candidates must hold a current CPR credential and have successfully demonstrated competence in Paramedic skills.
