Q. Can I become a certified and licensed EMT or AEMT in Nevada if I pass the EMT & Fire Training EMT or AEMT Course?
A. Yes. The state of Nevada allows applicants who hold a valid National Registry certificate to apply for reciprocity. Completing the EMT & Fire Training Course and then passing the National Registry practical and cognitive exams makes it possible for you to have an NREMT certificate. You can then use this certificate to apply for licensure in Nevada with a reciprocity application.

Q. How do I recertify for EMS in the State of Nevada?
A. To recertify as an EMT in Nevada you will need a 24 Hour Refresher + 8 CE's, and to recertify as an AEMT in Nevada you must complete 36 Hours of Continuing Medical Education Hours.
We have a refresher that 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.
