Oklahoma EMT & Paramedic Certification Requirements
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 offences may disqualify you, so it is best to check with the state EMS office if you have questionable background prior to training.
The State of Oklahoma requires emergency medical personnel to be licensed through the Oklahoma State Department of Health. To qualify to submit the certification application, the applicant must have already taken and passed the National Registry (NREMT) examination. To qualify to take the NREMT exams, the applicant must have previously completed an approved NREMT training program, like PERCOMonline’s EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic programs.
Other EMS certification requirements:
- Must be 18 years of age when applying
- For AEMT, must submit proof of passing the intubation skill at NREMT Practice Exam (covered by PERCOMonline’s skills labs for this level)

Some applicants may already have a license in another state, but are wishing to legally work in Oklahoma. This applicant must go through the “reciprocity” process to attain the Oklahoma certification using their existing license. In Oklahoma, this process is relatively easy. The applicant will use their NREMT certification and complete an Initial license application like any new applicant. Refer to the EMT initial licensing info link above.
