This Online EMT Course is Approved for NREMT Certification.
This Online EMT training course is a self directed (start today!), interactive, distance learning course that is approved for NREMT Certification. The course curriculum covers all EMT knowledge and skill requirements for the new EMT National Education Standards (NES).
If you are a self motivated, goal oriented student who enjoys being challenged then this is a great educational opportunity. If you are looking for an easy route to NREMT EMT Certification then this course is NOT for you.
Upon successful completion of this course a student will be authorized to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) practical skills and cognitive examinations. After passing the examinations the student will be awarded NREMT EMT Certification. These certification exams are used as basis for state licensure or certification in most states, or are honored with reciprocity during the licensure process.
