EMT CERTIFICATION AND RENEWAL

The Monterey County Emergency Medical Services Agency is the local authority for certifying Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) in the State of California. EMTs provide basic life support at the scene of medical emergencies and during transport to emergency departments and specialty centers. To be eligible for State EMT certification individuals need to complete an approved EMT training program and pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) EMT basic exam. State EMT certification is issued by the EMS Medical Director and is recognized statewide.

A California Department of Justice (DOJ) and federal (FBI) background check is required for initial State EMT certification; or when there is a lapse of EMT certification greater than one year or transferring certification entity. After your Live Scan has been cleared it could take up to thirty (30) business days for the licensing specialist to process your application and issue your card.
