The EMT-B exam is a computer adaptive test (CAT), meaning that, as you progress through the test, the questions you receive are influenced by your performance on previous questions. The exam contains between 70 and 120 multiple-choice questions, and you will have a maximum of 2 hours to complete it.
Before taking the certification exam, you must meet some requirements, including having successfully completed a state-approved EMT-B training course based on the NHTSA National Standard Curriculum. You must also be 18 years of age or older, and have passed the state psychomotor exam prior to taking the cognitive exam.
Exam requirements are established by the NHTSA (which this website is not affiliated with), but exams are administered on the state level. Click on your state name below to find out information about your state certification process.
