A Note from the Author

Serving the public as a paramedic is a rewarding career for anyone who wants to become a first responder. When paramedics respond to a call, they must be prepared for anything and know how to act quickly and safely when someone’s life is in their hands.

Paramedics have a great responsibility to the public and must demonstrate their knowledge of certain requirements before receiving certification. In most states, candidates must complete a training program and pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) Paramedic exam.

Certification as a Nationally Registered Paramedic (NRP) requires that you pass both a cognitive and a psychomotor test. The computer-adaptive multiple-choice cognitive test contains 80 to 150 questions. You will have 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete the exam.

As you prepare for the cognitive test, keep in mind that the key to selecting the correct answer is to read the question carefully and think about what the question is asking. I advise my students to regard the question as a snapshot of the incident. What is happening at the scene? What should you do to help? How would you handle the situation?

The practical, or “hands-on,” psychomotor exam, tests your skills in a scenario-type format. To learn more about the specific requirements for this exam, contact your state EMS office or course instructor. For additional information about the Paramedic certification exam, visit www.nremt.org.

Taking the Paramedic certification exam can be challenging. You need to prepare yourself by studying your textbook in addition to practicing with REA’s Paramedic Exam Flashcard Book and online test. Set aside plenty of time, focus on any areas where you feel you need extra review, and relax before the exam.

Being a paramedic is a profession like no other. I wish you the very best on the exam and your career in EMS!
