How you can become an Emergency Medical Technician in Kentucky

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics in Kentucky must complete a postsecondary training course. Kentucky mandates that all Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics in the state be professionally licensed. The next five steps are required in order to become an EMT in any state.

Step 1: Complete high school or earn your G.E.D.

On top of that, all Emergency Medical Technician training programs require students to be high school graduates or G.E.D. holders as part of their admissions prerequisites. Take the time to take this first step, and you will prevent a tremendous number of barriers during your career.

Step 2: Finish an Emergency Medical Technician training class in KY

You must complete an accredited, Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services authorized Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training course. Students must have graduated from the class within the previous 24 months and present verification of successful course finalization on the National Registry website (more information below). Community colleges, trade schools, firehouses, hospitals and universities all provide Emergency Medical Technician training courses in Kentucky.

How long is EMT School in Kentucky?

Depending on the specific training course, EMT training can often be completed in between two and six months.

Step 3: Have a current CPR-BLS certification for “Healthcare Provider” or equivalent

In addition to graduating from your EMT training course, you will need to additionally become CPR-BLS certified ahead of sitting for your certification examination. All Basic Life Support and CPR certification training have to meet standards established by the American Heart Association. The American Red Cross is considered one of the nation’s most well-known providers of training classes.

Step 4: Pass the National Registry’s EMT Cognitive and Psychomotor tests

The EMTs certification exam is given in two parts: the National Registry Cognitive (knowledge) and Psychomotor (skills) tests. Whereas the Psychomotor Exam asks students to display their skill in-person, the multiple-choice Cognitive Exam is administered in an online layout. We cover the two test portions in more detail below.

Step 5: Become added on the National EMT Registry

The remaining step in becoming an EMT is to get your name added to the National Emergency Medical Technician Registry inside of 30 days of having completed your training. A fee of $80 has to be paid in order to have your name posted to the registry. Upon getting included on the registry, you’ll be legally recognized as an EMT.
