WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL REGISTRY OF EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS WEBSITE
The single most important goal of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) is to offer assurance that EMS personnel providing treatment to patients—at their highest moment of need—are competent. The NREMT was founded in 1970 as a result of the recommendations made by the Committee on Highway Traffic Safety. This committee proposed a national certification agency to establish uniform standards for training and examination of personnel active in the delivery of emergency ambulance service.

E-card Now Available
Nationally certified EMS providers may now print their National EMS Certification card through their NREMT account by selecting the card type of "No, I will print my own card" when submitting an electronic recertification application. The electronic card (e-card) will be available immediately after the NREMT has accepted and approved the individual's recertification for the current season.
To print your card, login to your NREMT account, click on 'My Certification' then select 'Print Card.'
With a commitment to excellence, the NREMT holds accreditation from The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), which is the accreditation arm of The National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA). The NCCA is recognized as the authority on accreditation standards for professional certification organizations and programs. NCCA accreditation means that the standards set by the NREMT have been reviewed by the NCCA and deemed credible for ensuring the health, welfare and safety of the public.
