Certification Levels for all 50 States

Recommended Posts

Um, we do still have EMT-II (NREMT-I). If we don't, then why does the state still have an active EMT-II committe (http://www.emsa.cahwnet.gov/def_comm/062806agenda.asp)?

They are few and far between because the EMT-II is viewed as a limited life support provider and counties are not allowed to use them as a substitute for ALS providers, so counties have to petition to use them (California also allows basics to do some crazy things, again with strict oversight and a need. Basically, if you're not in the middle of no where, Basic's with larger scopes of practice and intermediates are going to be hard to find). The last number I've been able to find was less then 200 EMT-IIs in 2000, but I remember finding a more up to date number a few months ago.
