EMT-Basic Testing

EMT-I testing is no longer available at the Kern County EMS Division. As of January 1, 2007, California regulations require EMT-I tests be administered through computerized testing sites established by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. More information on Computer Based Testing (opens new window) can be found at this link. Contact your school/instructor regarding information on registering (opens new window) for an exam and locating the nearest testing site. (opens new window)
