Before committing the time and money it necessary when committing to a New Hampshire EMT and Paramedic license, you must be sure there is not anything in your background that may prevent you from attaining your state license! 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 New Hampshire requires emergency medical personnel to be licensed through the New Hampshire Department of Safety. 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.
New Hampshire EMT and Paramedic initial license 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
- NH Approved Scope of Practice Modules at the appropriate provider level
- NH Protocol Program/Exam at the appropriate provider level
- Initiate State Police Criminal Records Unit (CRU) criminal history record information (CHRI) background check either online or through paper form submission
Some applicants may already have a license in another state but are wishing to legally work in New Hampshire. This applicant must go through the “reciprocity” process to attain the New Hampshire license using their existing license.
