Hi all. I am a Primary Care Paramedic in British Columbia. I was wondering if it would be possible to transfer my license to the NREMT US licensure. I am a American Citizen and could if needed reside in the US.

My significant other is in Connecticut and I am thinking about moving there. I am aware of the differences in working in Canada vs the US so please leave that out :) Thanks!

I don't know how much you know about EMS licensing in the US, but every state has their own rules for licensure.

CT is one of the ones that requires NREMT, but not all do.

From my brief look online at the NREMT website it appears that your Paramedic education would have to be affiliated with a US based school. But your best bet is to call or email the NREMT and give them the specifics of your certifications.

Thank you for your reply. I am going to give them a call on Monday. I was looking at past threads and one member mentioned that if a out of country paramedic was able to get a NREMT school to accept their credentials and write the exams, that would be a possible way to make it work.

That's possible, but I would assume it would be based on a school by school basis.

There is a reciprocity agreement between BC and Washington at least for BC EMR to WA EMT. Not sure about PCP to AEMT.
