PERCOM AEMT and Paramedic students who have been marked clear to graduate from our program are potentially eligible to gain provisional certification from NREMT after taking and passing their CBT (computer based test). Then Texas, and maybe some other states, will allow you to function provisionally in that certification level as long as the EMS service and its medical director approve during the pandemic, despite not holding a state certification. Once the pandemic is over, you must complete the remaining certification process through NREMT and your state to be allowed to continue to function at that level. Please go to the NREMT website to read about how to request provisional certification and then consult your service Operations Director or Administrator.
