What is the process to become an Emergency Medical Technician in New Mexico?

If you plan to become an EMT or Paramedic in New Mexico, you’re going to be required to complete a formal training course. The State of New Mexico further asks all of its EMTs and Paramedics being licensed. The next five steps are required in order to become an EMT in each state.

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

Where Emergency Medical Technician classes are concerned, you’ll also notice early on that all authorized training programs ask students to give proof of at least a G.E.D. before beginning classes. Take the time to take this first basic step, and you can eliminate a huge number of obstacles during your career.

Step 2: Graduate from an accredited EMT course

In advance of challenging for certification as an Emergency Medical Technician, you’ll be expected to graduate from an accredited training class approved by the NM Dept. of Health. Before sitting for the test, you will need to present proof of graduation from a class in the preceding 24 months, and must in addition be placed on the National Registry (see below). Emergency Medical Technician training is typically offered at community colleges, technical schools, hospitals, and universities. Many courses are additionally available at fireman and police training academies.

How long does NM EMT training take?

It’s commonplace for EMT training to take anywhere from two to six months, dependent on the training site and hours of classes that are taken per week.

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

In addition to completing your EMT training course, you have to additionally become CPR-BLS credentialed prior to taking your certification assessment. In order to be recognized, a certification training course needs to be authorized by the American Heart Association. Classes are provided through an assortment of providers, such as the American Red Cross.

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

There are a pair of distinct parts to the EMT certification test: The Cognitive Exam (based on general knowledge) and the Psychomotor Exam (testing your skills). The knowledge portion is usually done online while the skills examination is done on location and in-person. We address the two test portions in detail below.

Click here for a more detailed look at the EMT licensing exams.

Step 5: Have your name included in the National EMT Registry
