National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT)

National certification assures that the EMS personnel providing treatment to patients—at their highest moment of need—are competent. National certification also establishes uniform standards for training and a valid, uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice required by professionals throughout their careers.


In the event of a national emergency, it is often necessary to bring EMS personnel from other states to the scene of the national emergency. National certification means those EMS personnel are familiar with the same techniques and procedures, and can successfully work side by side to tend to the injured or ill.
