EMS Requirements|State of Indiana|Licensing|Training

The Certification Section of Indiana Emergency Services is responsible for all EMT and Paramedic Training and Certification.

EMT B candidates in Indiana must take and pass an accredited EMS educational program consisting of no less than 144.5 hours combined. Additionally you will have to pass the Indiana State EMT or Paramedic Written Exam as well as the Indiana State EMT and Paramedic Practical Exam. The National Registry Exam or NREMT is only accepted if you posses an EMT license in another state.

The state EMT exam is very similar to the NREMT exam in that it is comprised of multiple choice questions divided into sections based on the Basics of Emergency Medicine and the Department of Transportation Curriculum. You will have questions on medical and trauma assessment as well as airway, cardiac, bleeding control and CPR.

Preparation for your Illinois state EMT or Paramedic Exam with similar EMT questions is a must. Utilize our database of 2365 EMT questions with a detailed exam tracking system and rationales for every question. Go into the state exam prepared after a subscription to our online EMT study aid.
