Paramedic Training New Hampshire (NH)

The following is a list of requirements you will need to satisfy prior to becoming a licensed EMT in the State of New Hampshire (N.H.):

  • 18 years of age
  • Criminal background check, while you may be able to get an EMT license with a felony conviction, a criminal record will limit where you will be able to work
  • 1200 hour training
  • CPR course certificate
  • NREMT certification
  • High School diploma
  • Valid drivers license not a requisite for an EMT license but may be required for better job prospects

 
Step 1

Find a local approved training facility and register for the 1200 hour EMT Specialist training (also known as EMT-I), but note that many training providers exceed the minimum 120 hours of training. Prior to contacting the training facility you should get proof of immunization and verify with the training facility what other immunizations you will need prior to registering.

It is very important that you only register for an approved training program at a state approved facility. as non-approved courses may not be accepted for an EMT license. For a full list of approved training programs see here: http://www.michigan.gov/documents/EMS_Education_Program_Sponsors_5-1-06_160653_7.pdf

Training programs are usually spread over a 12 to 18 month period and cost usually ranges between $5,000 and $10,000.

 

Step 2

A lot of approved training facilities also offer CPR certification courses. It would make sense for an applicant to choose a training facility that does indeed offer both the EMT and CPR training courses. Applicants should also talk to the training provider about the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) psychomotor examination and whether they will be able to provide such a certificate (see next step).

Upon completion you will receive a certificate that is needed for the state EMT license application.

 

Step 3

Paramedic license applicants must pass the NREMT exams, which are made up of two parts, a written cognitive exam and a psychomotor exam. For the written exam an applicant will need to register with the NREMT (http://www.nremt.org) and pay the $110 application fee. When the applicant is ready to take the exam they will need to get in touch with Pearson Vue (http://www.vue.com) who provide the computer based testing for the NREMT exam.

For the psychomotor examination you should check with your Paramedic training provider whether they are able to provide such certification in conjunction with the Paramedic course. Alternatively contact your local EMS Agency for details about test schedules. Note that this exam tests the applicant for 12 separate skills and is likely to incur a fee by the training facility.

Once the applicant has received certification for both exams they will be issued with an NREMT certificate which is valid for 2 years; this certificate is needed for the state EMT license application.

For some tips and recommendations on preparing for these exams take a look at our Preparing For NREMT Exams page.

 

Step 4

EMT Applicants must undergo a criminal background check prior to starting the clinical rotation of the EMT training course. The process for the criminal background check can be initiated through the training facility you choose. If you have a criminal record it would probably be best to contact the New Hampshire EMS Agency and discuss the prospects of obtaining a license and subsequent job.

 

Step 5

In order to submit an application an applicant must do the following:

1) Complete the Michigan EMS Agency’s EMT application form (http://www.michigan.gov/documents/mdch/License_Packet_4-07_197521_7.pdf)

2) Include proof of CPR course completion

3) Include copy of Paramedic course certificate

4) Include photocopy of NREMT registration

5) Include $80 application fee

 

Knowing all these steps in advance will greatly help in planning your training and ensuring a quick and efficient process as possible.

EMT And Paramedic Exam And Study Tips

Becoming an Emergency Medical Technician or Paramedic is great career choice, but you do have to be willing to do some substantial studying and preparation for exams. The exam content ranges from patient assessment to treatment procedures and human anatomy. Essentially, anything that is covered in the EMT or Paramedic course and text books is something that could come in the exam. In order to pass the exams you also need to quite a high percentage (70%) of correct answers,, which can add to the pressure in an exam situation.

By the time you are at the stage of preparing for the exam you will have already spent several thousand Dollars and a lot of time and effort on training, uniforms and text books; you will also have to pay a fee to sit the exam. To avoid having to pay for additional fees for re-sitting exams it is best if you are as prepared as possible to sit the exam on the first attempt. To help you avoid the costs and stress of re-examination it can b of great benefit to look at some study guides available.

Here are some paid for online courses and resources that may be of interest to you:

1) EMS Success is a great resource for both EMT-B and Paramedic students. For a reasonable fee of $29.95 you get access to e-book study guides, audio study guides so you can learn while you are out and about, access to an online forum where you can ask questions, and finally, there is a live exam preparation course held once a month. A great thing about this package is that it comes with a money-back guarantee should you not be satisfied.

2) Human Anatomy Course is probably more helpful to Paramedic students as it focuses on the anatomy side of things which makes up a more substantial part of the examination. While this course includes specific Paramedic training material you also get a lot of stuff that is probably not applicable to a Paramedic exam. However, at $37 this is a reasonable course if the anatomy side of your studies has been causing you difficulties.

If you prefer to not sign up for an online resource and maybe prefer just having a hard copy exam preparation book then you may be interested in these books:

1) SUCCESS! for the EMT-Basic: This book is specifically for students preparing for the EMT-B exam and as you can see, the feedback on Amazon is very good. The Reviews on Amazon are very good with an average of 4.5 stars.

2) Barron’s Paramedic Exam: For Paramedic students this book will be of interest and it includes a CD ROM that contains two additional practice exams, in addition to one in the book. The Reviews on Amazon are very good with an average of 4 stars.
