EMT Training Courses in NC

Q. Can I become a certified and licensed EMT in North Carolina if I pass the EMT & Fire Training EMT or AEMT Course?

A. Yes (With Extra Considerations listed belos). North Carolina accepts EMS applicants who have current NREMT certificates. After passing our course and the Practical and Written NREMT exams, you will be NREMT certified and can apply for licensure through reciprocity with the state of North Carolina.

Q. Where is the state of North Carolina in the transition from the National Standard Curriculum to the new National EMS Education Standards?

A. Couldn’t find any information about North Carolina’s transition, but if you are certified NREMT they will accept your certification.

Q. Does North Carolina require any extra EMT training that EFT does not provide in its course?

A. To receive NC EMT or AEMT licensure you must reside in North Carolina, attend an EMS educational program in North Carolina, or work for a licensed North Carolina EMS provider. A North Carolina Credentialing Information System (CIS) profile must be established online prior to making application. If you currently hold a North Carolina issued EMS credential, you may only apply for legal recognition at a higher or lower EMS credentialing level.
