    NREMR Registry?

    I am going to take the EMR National Registry soon. I just need to pay the $60 and I will get a test date scheduled. My question is has anyone taken the EMR Registry then taken the EMT-B Registry and would you say taking the EMR would help you prepare for the EMT? I will take the EMR test this...

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    You mean during the 12 years I was not registered? I was an EMR and and assisted ambulance crews. Same thing I did as an EMT Basic. When I was an EMT with the registry I drove an ambulance with a medic on board. I work in private sector as first responder as well. EMR level is all is required...

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    EmR's are mostly vol. who respond from their homes or jobs. They are highly regarded around here. Many take great pride and train with local ambulance service. I can count on one hand though how many volunteer emt' see have, but we do have vol. emt's that have never worked for a dime.

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    Don't want to argue the point but when it comes to both yah they are the same. What is different is the transport ambulance side of things. Patient asement is the same. What I did notice is the training was not as intense with EMR vs when I took basic. Not as many test, but a few failed my...

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    I am going off what I been told. I was a registered EMT Basic for over 5 years. I let it lapse because my fire department didn't require it and I couldn't afford to keep it up at the time so I took the EMR level course that my department helps keep training records on. Plus we take a refresher...

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    but if you take someone who hasn't done a thing with it in several years then I would question it, but if that person can pass the registry and the skills then why not. I know with firefighting if you don't stay involved with at least a vol. dept. documenting monthly training you loose that...

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    I get exactly what you are saying and I would agree. However the EMT Basic and EMR are basicly the same. Everything I have done as an EMR I did as an EMT Basic minus transport. EMRS where I live are not allowed to transport.

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    She did say the class has to meet the new standard. She stressed that by saying it 3 times. According to college I contacted gave me two choices and said they were transitioning course. I will confirm all this the week before class because it's going to over $100 for the class. However...

    NREMT Re-Entry. Who has done it?

    Not what the lady said today on the phone and it says on the website prior state or NREMT. I called today to be 100% sure because at one time it read that way. I found a thread on here where someone said they did it earlier this year after letting theirs lapse about 7 years. Thing always was...
