*Approval Through Reciprocity Process

* Explanation of Reciprocity: States identified with the Approval Through Reciprocity Process identified above require applicants to hold a current National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification at the level of application and/or require an active licensure through the state in which they are transferred from. This process may require the completion of verification documents from the State licensure board and/or verification documents from the institution completing the initial education requirements.

EMS COMPACT: EMS Licensed personnel are also able to migrate per state during declared disasters under the EMS Compact (Interstate Commission for EMS Personnel Practice). The EMS Compact is governed by Commissioners appointed to the Interstate Commission for EMS Personnel Practice by member states. The Commission was established by Section 10 B.1 of the Recognition of EMS Personnel Licensure Interstate Compact (REPLICA) legislation. There are currently 23-member states.

Footnotes

  1. State requires completion of a State Approved Protocol Course prior to issuance of licensure through reciprocity. 
  2. The State of California credentials the paramedic level; however, EMT and AEMT applying for licensure are directed for credentialing through the local EMS agencies. 
  3. Connecticut requires paramedic applicants to receive a Mental Health First Aid training program prior to issuance. 
  4. AEMT – N/A references states that do not currently identify Advanced EMT (AEMT) as a licensure level within their governing body. 
  5. The state of Oklahoma requires the individual applying for the Advanced EMT level to have a NREMT psychomotor examination skill verification for endotracheal intubation. 
  6. The State of Oregon requires applicants at the Paramedic level to submit proof of an associate’s degree or higher, or proof of active employment at the National Registry Paramedic level for three of the past five years. 
  7. Wisconsin requires students applying for reciprocity to complete a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) course within 6 months of application.
