PURPOSE OF National Registry

The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians exists to serve as the national EMS certification organization. It accomplishes this purpose by providing a valid, uniform, legally defensible and psychometrically sound process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice by EMS professionals throughout their careers and to maintain a registry of certification status.


Members of the Board of Directors are responsible for the oversight, strategic planning, policy development and financial well-being of the National Registry. Board members are expected to attend board meetings and scheduled committee meetings, and to participate in other National Registry duties as assigned. In addition, Board members are expected to come prepared for all meetings, reading all materials made available and be actively engaged in all discussions and decisions.

Board members have fiduciary responsibility to the National Registry and must exercise their duties of care, loyalty and obedience in all National Registry related business. Board members are independent members of the National Registry Board and must be cognizant of recognizing any potential conflicts of interests (whether real or perceived) to ensure that all decisions are made in the best interest of the National Registry. Although board members bring varied talent and expertise, they do not represent the interest of any other organization/stakeholder.

While debates and deliberations are necessary to ensure thoughtful and careful policies are made, Board members are expected to support final decisions made by the Board. In addition, confidential material shared with board members must remain strictly confidential and must not be shared with any outside party.
