The NREMT EMT Intermediate/99 Examination
This test is taken as part of the EMT-Intermediate/99 national registration. The cognitive test lasts two and a half hours and includes 150 questions. The content for the cognitive test is broken down into the following categories:
- 18% Airway & Breathing
- 17.3% Cardiology
- 16.7% Trauma
- 15.3% Medical
- 16% Obstetrics and Pediatrics
- 16.7% Operations
Candidates are allowed to attempt this examination three times. If after three attempts a candidate is still unsuccessful, the candidate will have to provide records regarding having taken 36 hours of remedial education before being allowed to try again up to three more times. If a candidate is unsuccessful after six tries, the candidate must complete an entire state-approved EMT-Intermediate/99 program. After a candidate passes the exam, he or she will receive information about national EMS certification. If a candidate does not pass, an account of which categories were near or below the requirements for passing will be provided.
The practical assessment for EMT-Intermediate/99 assesses a candidate’s knowledge of eleven separate skills. These include:
- Patient assessment – trauma
- Patient assessment – medical
- Managing ventilation
- Cardiac management skills
- IV and medication skills
- Pediatric skills
- Random basic skills
If a candidate fails five or fewer of the eleven skills tested, the candidate may take the sections on just the skills failed up to two times. If there is an opportunity to take a test again on the same day, the candidate may take just one that day. Testing again is finished with a method of all or none. Candidates cannot take just some of the skills that need to be tested again. If the test is failed a second time, candidates will then need to take remedial education on the skills that were a problem, and then take all eleven skills over again. If candidates fail six or more during the attempt, the candidates will need to take remedial training. If the test is failed three times, documentation of taking the EMT-Intermediate/99 education program again must be provided before a candidate can re-take the exam.
