 Thank you for considering the REMSA Paramedic Education Program 

 

There are multiple steps to successfully making it into our program.  This is a highly competitive process and each step should be taken seriously.  If you have questions at anytime, please do not hesitate to contact us to ensure you are prepared for each step in the process.

Step 1: Testing - The REMSA Paramedic program currently uses an online exam to evaluate the following categories: EMT-P math (including basic math and algebra), EMT exam (information from the current EMT curriculum), reading level, learning style, student motivation, and test anxiety. Candidates must complete this exam at one of the testing sessions. We do not offer study guides through REMSA, however, we do advise that you study basic math/algebra, and the current EMT curriculum, as these are the biggest weight of all of the exams.  It is recommended that you review the latest EMT text of your choice. Effective January 27, 2017, per NAC450B.720 Section 48, 8b: A person must be certified as an advanced emergency medical technician before receiving training for certification as a paramedic. Please bring your current AEMT certification to the test for vertification. Current AEMT students, please bring your State of Nevada EMT certification. If you do not have a State of Neveda Certification you will be required to obtain one prior to the first day of class through reciprocity. This step should be handled directly with the State of Nevada EMS Division. Call 775-687-7590 for help with state certification issues.

Step 2: Submit Completed Application - Applications are available on the website. The application has many parts including reference letters and a transcript requests.  Please be prepared to put work into this step and do not wait until the last minute to complete.

Application Deadline: January 6th, 2021

Step 3: Panel Interview - All successful candidates will be contacted and scheduled for a board interview. Five to seven board members including REMSA field staff will ask standard interview questions allowing the candidate to share work history and reasons why you are seeking a career as a paramedic.  It is imperative that you come prepared to share why you want to be a paramedic, what experience you have that will make you successful in the class, and what drives you personally.

Oral interview boards: January 11th - January 15th, 2021

Successful Acceptance into the Program:  REMSA Education Coordinators will score the application, letters of recommendation, exam scores, and panel interview scores. A list of accepted candidates will be compiled and notifications will me made.  

Notifications will be be made on: No later than January 22nd, 2021

Part of choosing to become a paramedic should also include some research and understanding of what the job entails. It is important to understand the physical and mental challenges of the job and ensuring that you are prepared to meet them prior to spending a substantial amount of time and money on the program. Please review the functional job analysis provided by NHTSA to understand the finer details of the day to day expectations of a paramedic.
