Age Requirements for Admission and EMS Licensure

 

The State of Michigan requires that individuals are at least eighteen (18) years of age in order to obtain their license as an EMS Provider at every level. Students who are not yet eighteen (18) by the date of the EMS course completion will potentially have a difficult time meeting the NREMT exam requirements.

 

Students are required to successfully complete the NREMT cognitive written exam within two (2) years of successfully completing and passing the in-class NREMT psychomotor Practical Exam. However, the psychomotor exam expires twelve (12) months from their date of successful completion. If the student has not taken and passed the written cognitive NREMT exam within these twelve (12) months, the student must make arrangements with their original instructor to retake the NREMT psychomotor practical exam.

Criminal History

 

Certain criminal history can prevent an individual from being able to sit for the NREMT examination, and many states have laws preventing individuals with certain criminal histories from receiving an EMS license in that state, including misdemeanors, felony convictions, and other revocations or suspensions of a health care licensure. Students wishing to test for the NREMT exam and apply for state application for licensure will have to submit a full detailed explanation of the conviction in order to be approved for testing and state licensure. If a student believes he/she may have criminal history that will prevent their ability to test or become licensed, the Instructor or Course Coordinator needs to be notified ASAP.

 

Students are required to sign an acknowledgment stating he/she understands that there is the potential for their application(s) to be denied and that an appeal may need to be submitted to the NREMT for final testing approval. The full course Syllabus and Handbook references the Criminal Conviction Policy. It is up to the individual student to direct all questions and clarifications regarding their criminal background to the NREMT and the State of Michigan directly.

 

All students desiring to enter the Emergency Response Training Center will be required to have a criminal background check. Additionally, each student will need a negative ten (10) panel drug screen performed prior to beginning the clinical portion of the course. More information on deadlines will be addressed during specific course requirement orientation meetings.
