Where can I obtain state license with completion of EMT course certification? (Non NR-EMT certification)


Recommended Posts

  • [*] Apply by Exam (Those who completed a Michigan approved education course)[*]

It means you must complete a course then take the Michigan exam. They probably only allow a year as well.

Why don't you just get your NR Certification? It will make your life a whole lot easier.

What state did you complete the course in? I know in NM (non NR state for EMT-B and EMT-I) they won't let you test for the state license with a course completion certificate from another state. Y

In 2001, the State of Michigan began utilizing the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMTs) exam process to facilitate both the written and practical portions of the State Exam.

Until MI files the necessary papers to fully rid itself of the NREMT qualifications, then it is still an NREMT state.

One of the 'benefits' of holding National Registry credentials is for this purpose right here...to make reciprocity of licensure/certifications. It also verifies that you've met a certain 'standard' of education that is readily recognized.

When I went though the EMT course in '95, we were trained to NR standards, we just didn't have to hold the NREMT card to get a state license. You CAN apply for the NREMT exam IF your CEU's are current (including your CPR card).

It sounds like you're considering getting out of the grip of the 'Giant Mitten', so obtaining the NREMT credentials can only help you wherever you end up. I didn't have my NREMT-B when I came to GA, and therefore ended up having to start 'all over again' because I coulndn't apply for reciprocity, and my MI license ended up exipring.

Bottom line is this, it's better to just 'suck it up' and take the NREMT. EMT-B isn't rocket science, and you should have no problem passing the test. It can only help you in the end.

You can apply for a License in M.A. but its at the sole discression of the M.A. Department Of EMS depending on your circumstance if you took an out of state class since they dont recognize NR. If they say yes you will have to pay 150.00 and take the writen and practical tests but it take a long time to get all the paper work done if you dont hold a states providers license. Heres the link to MA department of EMS for more infomation.

Honestly if I were you I would retake a EMT class so you have fresh knowlage to properly be a EMT. Its in your best intrest to have NR it makes your life alot easyer.

I completed an EMT-Basic class in Michigan, but have not completed the National Registry. I currently do not have a license.

I know there are a few non National Registry states. Is there any state that would allow me to obtain a license with just a copy of my certification that I've completed the course?

Are there any non NR-EMT states that would allow me to obtain a license without having to take a state test?

Thanks guys!

In 2001, the State of Michigan began utilizing the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMTs) exam process to facilitate both the written and practical portions of the State Exam.

Why didn't you just take the NREMT (State test) when you finished the class like everybody else does?

Michigan is getting rid of NR altogether and a lot of companies already don't require it. You can apply for MI licensure by exam without NR, go to MDCH Personnel Licensure. Finding a job here, however, is another story. Still, you could get licensed here then look for reciprocity.

The State of Michigan has been talking about getting rid of the EMT-Specialist for about 20 years now. Since I see they're still licensing Specialists (EMT-I), I don't place much stock in the idea of them doing away with the NREMT testing any time in the near future.

R 325.22312 Licensure by examination.

Rule 22312. An applicant for licensure by examination shall submit a completed

application on a form provided by the department, together with the requisite fee. In

addition to meeting the requirements of the code and administrative rules, an

applicant for licensure by examination shall meet all of the following requirements:

approved under section 20912 of the code, and the proof of completion sent directly

from the education program to the department.

(B) A first-time applicant shall attain a passing score on the appropriate

department-prescribed examination. The passing scores shall be submitted directly

to the department by the testing agency.

© An individual applying to the department for licensure by having passed the

department-prescribed examinations shall have completed an initial education

course within 2 years of application.

(d) The fees paid by an applicant who has not completed all requirements for

licensure by examination within 2 years of the department’s receiving the

application shall be forfeited to the department and the application shall be void.

(e) An individual who is guilty of fraud or deceit in procuring or attempting to

procure licensure, including using falsified documents to gain admittance to a

department-prescribed licensure examination, shall be denied licensure for at least

2 years.

(f) An individual shall not represent himself or herself as, function as, or perform

the duties of, a licensed medical first responder, emergency medical technician,

emergency medical technician specialist or paramedic until licensed by the

department in accordance with the code and these rules.

I'm starting to smell something here, and I don't think it's the cod.......

Same question that Lone Star had as well. Why didn't you take the test with the rest of you class? If you were indeed at the top of your class you should have had no problem testing at the time. Also you should check with your instructor about this. We are only able to help you based on the information you are giving us. If you want my opinion here it is. Get ahold of your instructor and ask him what you should do. My advice would be to re-take the class and test with them.

Just a thought, but if someone from each US state, and someone from each Canadian Provence, could post something like what I posted on obtaining reciprocity in their respective regions, we'd at least have the ideas posted.

Here is the GA requirements for licensure. It also mentions how to apply for reciprocity:
