    I might be moving to Colorado from Indiana after I get done with my EMT class in late May. Will my certification transfer states, or is that not a thing?

    Typically each state has their own certification process. They usually seem to be fairly similar, and straightforward.

    Try googling the reciprocity process for CO at your provider level.

    If you have your nremt it will transfer very easily to Colorado.

    Gotcha. Will do. Not to sound stupid, but do we take the NREMT at the end of the class, or is it a separate thing?

    After you finish class the school will do a final practical usually then tell you to go take the nremt. Every state is different. Your instructors should have more info.

    Reciprocity varies from place to place, but the state EMS site should have all the info and the gist is the same. I just did my medic Missouri to Virginia. I filled out the packet, gave the necessary alphabet soups, and copied what was asked, then sent it off. Got it back a week or two later.
