Can Canadians register for NREMT test without SSN?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm planning to take a Wilderness EMT [WEMT] program in the US this summer.

As a Canadian, I don't have an American Social Security Number [sSN], but it appears NREMT requires a SSN in order to register to take the test. I'm currently overseas, so being on hold with [the notoriously hard to get through to]NREMT on an international call is difficult.

Has anyone any information on this? The WEMT course provider will only provide details once I've paid and registered for the course...

Thank you for any advice. :wave:

I have friends who have taken the NREMT and are from other countries and do not have SS numbers...I believe they contacted the National Registry and were provided a generic one to enter when enrolling.

The NREMT does not offer a wilderness credential and I have not found them particularly difficult to get through to, especially if you are able to use email. Good luck.
