Initial Testing Information

 

The Written Examination

Your test will be different from every other candidate’s. NREMT EMT-Basic and Paramedic cognitive exams are computerized adaptive tests. Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) is state-of-the art in high stakes certification testing. It is the most accurate and fair evaluation technology available.

CAT testing is different from most other forms of testing in that each exam adapts to each candidate’s ability level. Depending on how a question is answered, the computer determines the difficulty of the next question. Consequently, each candidate’s testing experience will be unique.

There is no minimum percentage of correct items needed to pass the test. CAT exam scores are based on the characteristics of the questions you get right and wrong—not how many you get right.

The Practical Examination

NREMT Skill Sheets 

The practical portion of the examination will be administered by approved EMT Training Programs or approved CE providers. The National Registry Skills Sheets will be used and maintained by the school. A CE record should be completed for each student who successfully passes the skills examination.

The practical skills tests consist of the following:

Long Bone Fracture
Joint Dislocation
Traction Splinting
Bleeding and Shock
