Testing and Certification

Testing and Certification

Upon successful completion of the course, you will have met the US Department of Transportation and National Registry standards qualifying you to test for your EMT certification. 

All students must pass both a practical and a written exam to become certified as an EMT.  For maximum flexibility, Pelham Training recommends that all students acquire both the National Registry and State certifications.

All students will participate in the Indiana State Practical Skills Exam on the last day of class. Pelham students will take this exam at no extra cost to them.


National Registry Written Exam

 The Indiana Skills test is accepted by the National Registry and therefore qualifies for the skills portion of the testing for certification.  The National Registry Written Exam can typically be scheduled as early as 4 to 6 days following your practical exam and is at the student’s expense ($80.00 as of this writing). 

The National Registry test is administered by Pearson VUE Education.  Testing locations and times in all 50 states can be found on the Pearson VUE website at
