Before committing the time and money it takes for EMS certifications, you must be sure there is not anything in your background that may prevent you from attaining your state certification! Any criminal offenses may disqualify you, so it is best to check with the state EMS office if you have a questionable background prior to training.
The State of Montana requires emergency medical personnel to be licensed through the Montana Board of Medical Examiners. To qualify to submit the certification application, the applicant must have already taken and passed the National Registry (NREMT) examination. To be marked eligible to test NREMT exams, the applicant must have previously completed an approved NREMT training program, like PERCOMonline’s EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic programs.
EMS Initial certification requirements:
- Present a valid NREMT certification as an EMT, AEMT, or Paramedic
- Must be 18 years of age
- Possess a high school diploma or equivalent
Some applicants may already have a license in another state but are wishing to legally work in Montana. This applicant must go through the “reciprocity” process to attain the Montana certification using their existing license. It is recommended that each applicant be certified with NREMT prior to reciprocity in Montana. However, Montana may recognize some state licenses in lew of the NREMT certification, but this is case by case, and further examinations may be required.
