Photo/Video Release Forms
Use these forms to apply for a Vermont EMR or EMT practical examination. These forms also serve as license applications, so you do not need to submit additional paperwork after completing the licensing requirements. AEMT and Paramedic candidates register for a practical exam through their course instructor.
If you are a Registered Nurse or Physician Assistant, you can apply to challenge the exam and obtain a Vermont license at any level without taking a course. Challenging the exam will not result in a National Registry certification.
Use these forms to apply for an initial Vermont EMS license AFTER you have obtained a National Registry of EMTs certification at that level:
Use one of the following EMS License Renewal Applications if your license is due to expire after 2018:
Paramedics who hold an approved Critical Care Paramedic certification may apply for a CCP endorsement if they are affiliated with a Paramedic level agency that has been approved to function at the CCP level and have the approval of that agency's District Medical Advisor.
