EMS Practical ExamS

How do I register for a practical exam site?

All candidates must register before attending an 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 from the Documents section of this website. EMR and EMT candidates who need to retest a failed skill station will receive a Retest Registration form 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 AEMT or Paramedic 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.
