Learn at your own pace


Licensed RNs, PAs, and Physicians can become EMT-certified with our accelerated online course.

The RN to EMT Process

Licensed RNs and advanced healthcare providers can bypass the traditional 200+ hour EMT course by taking our supplemental training followed by successful completion of the NREMT Psychomotor Skills Exam and Cognitive Exam.

The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) is the only nationally-recognized certifying body for EMTs in the United States. NREMT certification is a pre-requisite for an EMT license in most states (we recommend you verify this with the EMS agency in your state). It’s analogous to the NCLEX exam and NCSBN approval for registered nursing practice.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our founder is a physician who was an EMT first. He recognized that the methods used to train physicians could be applied to EMT education. By doing so, we’re able to achieve superior student outcomes in less time than traditional healthcare schools.

Since 2010, we have transformed thousands of people into EMTs. Explore their experiences on our student testimonials page.

We do things differently than the other training programs that cannot provide the same level of detailed attention we give our students and our curriculum design. Read more about our story and methods here.
The same as you would need to watch videos on the internet. Our students have been taking our courses online for over ten years, so you need a strong and stable internet connection and a device such as a laptop/desktop is recommended.
We use the learning management system called Thinkific – it’s an easy-to-use platform that works best on a laptop/desktop running a current browser (Google Chrome is recommended).
EMT stands for Emergency Medical Technician. EMTs are the second level of certified Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers. They can be found working in ambulances, hospitals, event centers, casinos, transport services, and more.

EMTs provide life-saving prehospital care. For a more detailed description of the EMT and the other certification levels, please read it here.
The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians is the national certification standard for EMS professionals. The majority of states in the country (46) use the NREMT for certification for one or more EMS levels. Simply put, becoming an NREMT-certified EMT is the requirement to become certified in most states. Allied Medical Training is an authorized NREMT training center – we use curriculum approved by the NREMT and conduct NREMT psychomotor skill exams. For more information, please visit nremt.org.
After successfully completing all course requirements, students register and pay on www.nremt.org for the NREMT cognitive exam. Candidates are required to schedule this exam at a Pearson Education Center. It’s extremely important that you take your NREMT cognitive exam no more than 1-4 weeks after completing the EMT course for the best chance of passing the exam.

Around the same time as you are registering with the NREMT, you should apply for EMT certification with your state. Most states accept the NREMT certification and may even be sent test results automatically. In some cases, you may need to send in a copy of your NREMT certification card.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure their state accepts NREMT certification, a course with an online component, that they have no additional requirements to become certified there, and to find out the application process for that state. To find this out, just look up your state’s EMS office.
This course takes the fundamentals of emergency medicine from topics in both our EMT initial course and EMT recertification course to enhance the knowledge of RNs. Topics include airway & ventilation, EMS operations, patient assessments, and pharmacology for EMTs.

The online course includes audiovisual presentations, articles, and multiple-choice quizzes that require a minimum passing score (but can be taken multiple times to review and learn). Then this knowledge is applied to the required skills for EMTs as a one-day training and testing session at our facility in Edina, MN.
This course is for RNs or higher (including PAs and MDs) who are looking to add on EMT certification to their qualifications. This could be due to a specific job requiring it or for volunteering on ambulances.

Since RNs already have so much clinical experience and medical knowledge, we’re able to offer a much shorter course focusing on only aspects of emergency care an RN might not already be familiar with.

Please note you will be required to upload your current RN license in the online course.
This day is focused on practicing the 8 required EMT skills that are included in the psychomotor skills exam. The online course includes preparatory information about the skills, including demonstration videos, skill sheets, and study guides.

These patient assessments are different from the assessments RNs are used to doing, so it’s important to take the time to study and familiarize yourself with the skills before attending the in-class training.
There is no required textbook for the course since the required reading materials are included in the online course. Should you be interested in a textbook to supplement your learning, we would recommend Emergency Care, 13th or 14th Edition, by Daniel Limmer.
EMTs are required to be CPR-certified at the Healthcare Provider level (also called Basic Life Support). Many RNs already have this qualification – we require you to upload your BLS card in the online course, and it must expire at least 6 months after your skills training date.

If you are not currently BLS certified, you can add it on to your RN to EMT course or take it elsewhere and submit your certificate.
Our current pass rate on the NREMT cognitive exams specifically for RNs who have taken this course is 100%. We recommend study tools as part of your course completion email to practice applying your knowledge on EMT-level questions.
