Frequently Asked Questions About The NREMT Exam
National Registry Certification exams evaluate your competence as an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) practitioner. Basically, the EMT certification exam just determines how well you can perform as an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR), Emergency Medical
Technician (EMT), Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT), and Paramedic.
At The Paramedic Coach, we offer top, comprehensive guidance that can help you prepare for the NREMT exam and tackle it with confidence! We help equip you with the knowledge, information, and practice to pass the exam.
Is a Practice Test and Paramedics Videos the Best Way to Prep for the Exam?
Think back to your high school SATs and ACTs–the students who aced the test, studied. This can look like purchasing specific textbooks and materials, such as EMT study guides. However, not every student learns best by reading complicated textbooks with confusing language.
For a comprehensive NREMT test prep, we recommend taking online courses. The Paramedic Coach offers an all-inclusive video vault and masterclasses that covers all areas of the NREMT exam. Best of all–you have a lifetime of unlimited access to the exam prep material. These EMT test videos allow you to hear the material, see it, and work at a pace that makes sense for you. Best of all? Our NREMT courses can be used at any time on the go, which is way more convenient than carrying several textbooks around as you prepare for the EMT exam.
Our exam prep tools include:
- More than 480 education videos
- Audio files
- Worksheets, drug cards and study guides
- Practice exam questions
- Access to a private community to connect and study with
How Long Does It Take To Prepare for the NREMT Test with Study Guides?
We recommend you study for the NREMT a minimum of three weeks before your exam date. If you wait until the two-week mark, we recommend setting aside several hours a day to prepare for the exam.
Ideally, it’s a good idea to start preparing around three to five weeks before your exam. This will allow you the time to revisit EMT concepts you’re struggling with or connect with us for additional support. We highly recommend taking an NREMT prep course to help you gain the necessary knowledge and skills to pass the exam without needing to take it multiple times.
How Many People Pass the NREMT on the First Try?
The first-time pass rate for EMTs averages only between 67% to 73% in 2021 alone, which means over a quarter of first-time test-takers are failing the exam. This exam is meant to prepare you for real-world scenarios where lives are on the line, so preparing not only helps you pass, but keeps you focused and prepared for working out in the field. Taking a NREMT course will help you prep for the exam and pass with flying colors.
What Percentage of People Pass the NREMT Test?
Like we mentioned above, roughly 33% of EMTs and 23% of paramedics fail the test on their first attempt. While there currently isn’t enough data to show how the percentage of second or third-time test-takers passed, we can safely say that if you thoughtfully prepare, there’s a higher chance of passing the NREMT exam and becoming a certified professional.
How Does the NREMT Scoring Work?
The CAT exam stands for ‘Computer Adaptive Test.’ If you are taking EMR, EMT, or Paramedic-level exams, the style of test you’re taking is CAT. The exam is electronic and works progressively. This means each time you answer a question correctly, the test gives you a harder question on the same topic or moves you to a new topic entirely. The AEMT exam is a linear exam so you will take the entire set of questions.
Say you don’t answer a question correctly. The computer then wants to determine if it’s a fluke or if you don’t understand this aspect of emergency pre-hospital treatment, so it will ask you more questions on the topic until you either fail the topic or start answering correctly. The main idea behind this is that the NREMT computer system wants to be 95% certain you understand each of the five content areas.
