NREMT Now Has Online Webinar CBT Methods Available Through Pearson Vue
The National Registry is pleased to announce that it has expanded its cognitive examination delivery through Pearson VUE’s online proctoring platform, OnVUE. In response to limited or restricted test center availability caused by COVID-19, the National Registry is partnering with Pearson VUE to make the EMT and AEMT certification examinations available during the national emergency. OnVUE allows for EMT and AEMT candidates to take the cognitive examination securely from their home or office, without having to go to a traditional Pearson VUE examination center.
“The National Registry is aggressively working to provide every option possible for our candidates,” said Bill Seifarth, executive director of the National Registry. “As the pandemic arrived and we started to face its impacts on Pearson VUE testing centers, the National Registry’s Board of Directors quickly authorized the use of online proctoring to ensure the pipeline of new EMS professionals could continue to flow.”
AEMT and EMT candidates will have the opportunity to select the OnVUE option once their Authorization To Test (ATT) has been issued. Candidates will navigate to the Application Status page and select the online proctored examination choice. For those who wish to take a traditional, in-person examination, that option is also available, though locations and times may be limited due to COVID-19-related closures or limitations.
