Q. Can I become a certified and licensed EMT or AEMT in South Carolina if I pass the EMT & Fire Training EMT or AEMT Course?
A. Yes. South Carolina requires all EMT’s to be Nationally Registered. Upon completion of this course and after passing the NREMT exams, you will be NREMT certified, which will allow you to apply for licensure with the state of South Carolina.
Included in the EMT-Basic and EMT-Intermediate course, that EMT & Fire Training has to offer, is full access to our test prep site to help you study for the NREMT exams at no extra cost. http://www.emt-national-training.com/

Q. How do I recertify for EMS in the State of South Carolina?
A. One of the options for recertification in the state of South Carolina is to submit a current National Registry certificate. The National Registry requires a 24 hour Refresher course for the EMT Level and a 36 Hour Refresher for the AEMT Level.
The refresher course we offer is 24 hours, and includes 10 hours of self-directed learning, and 14 hours of Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) sessions where a real instructor is present to answer questions and discuss the topics. It is fully accepted by the NREMT and is CECBEMS accredited. This is only one of the few online refreshers that meet the actual requirements by the NREMT to be counted as an official refresher. You have 2 years to complete the refresher from the time you sign up (or you can usually get it done in as little as 2 to 3 weeks). The cost of the refresher is $249.
