EMS Practical ExamS

The EMS Practical Exam Schedule features at least one exam site per month, usually on the second Saturday. All candidates must register before attending an exam site.

How do I register for a practical exam site?

At the EMR and EMT levels, students fill out a paper application to sign up for a test site. The applications are typically provided by the instructor near the end of the course, but students may also download an EMR or EMT exam application here. EMR and EMT candidates who need to retest a failed skill station will receive a Retest Registration form in the mail with their official results.

At the AEMT and Paramedic levels, instructors register their students for the practical exam. Students can sign up to retest failed skill stations by contacting the EMS Office.  Registration for an AEMT and Paramedic exam site requires a Practical Authorization to Test (PATT) number, which is assigned after completing an online application on the National Registry of EMTs website.
