Trained Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are always in demand. Being an EMT can be both rewarding and stressful. In an emergency, the EMTs are usually on the scene immediately after the first responders. When seconds count, they are the ones who save lives.
It takes a special, very skilled person to step in and help others during their most vulnerable time of need. Therefore, the EMT certification process is designed to adequately train and promote only those individuals who can handle the job.
If you want to earn EMT certification, you must meet the following requirements established by the National Registration of Emergency Medical Technicians: you must be at least 18 years old, you must have completed a state-approved EMT-Basic course within the past two years, you must have passed all sections of the EMT certification exam (including a psychomotor exam), and you must hold a current CPR credential for health care providers.
The EMT certification exam has two parts: cognitive and psychomotor. The cognitive exam is a computer adaptive test that covers the entire spectrum of emergency medical service (EMS) care, including: Airway and Breathing, Cardiology, Trauma, Medical, Obstetrics and Pediatrics, and EMS Operations. The psychomotor exam covers how well you can actually (rather than theoretically) care for a patient’s physical needs in an emergency.
To prepare for the EMT certification exam, you should spend some time studying for the cognitive exam and practicing for the psychomotor exam. An EMT study guide can provide such helpful resources as practice exams and sample questions that may help to prepare you for the cognitive section of the EMT certification exam.
