WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE TRANSITION TO COMPUTER BASED TESTING
The NREMT transitioned its pencil-and-paper exams to computer based testing January 2007.
The implementation of computer based testing strengthens the NREMT's commitment to serving the EMS community and providing a valid and reliable exam process. It also provides numerous benefits to the candidates, educators, and others in the EMS community as well as the American public, including:
Rapid turnaround of test results
Choices on when and where to take the exam
More fair and accurate evaluation of a candidate's competency
Fortified exam security
As with all of its endeavors, the National Registry's primary interest is the safety of the American public. With computer based testing, we can verify, with increased accuracy, that every EMT who passes the NREMT exam possesses the necessary skills and knowledge to competently provide entry-level, pre-hospital emergency medical care.
