TESTING Requirements:
Successful completion of the EMT program allows graduates to sit for the National Registry Emergency Medical Technicians Practical Psychomotor examination. Upon completion of this practical exam, students then arrange to take the written exam with NREMT at a Pearson Vue site. The Psychomotor exam is offered at the Salt Lake City Campus several times per month.

BEMS: Candidate is required to pay a fee of $102 to BEMS.  The process of paying this fee and uploading all documents occurs online. More information about this process is in the Student Handbook you get at orientation. 

NREMT: Candidate must pay $80 to the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) to take the written test at a Pearson Vue site – to begin go to the NREMT website, where the student must create an account. More information about this process is in the Student Handbook you get at orientation. This account should be created immediately and the fee paid no later than 30 days after class begins.

NREMT Practical Psychomotor Exam: Taking the Psychomotor Exam at EMT Utah is not included in the cost of your tuition. Students who wish to test elsewhere are permitted to do so. The fee for this exam is $275; however, students of EMT Utah receive a $200 discount and pay only $75. Students register for their test date online via the Testing Center. Fees are paid at this time of testing registration. Students who fail stations during the exam can reschedule an opportunity to retest those stations for an additional fee. Retesting anywhere from 1-4 stations is a $50 fee. More than four stations failed requires a complete retake of the exam and is another full testing fee of $75.
