Upon successful completion of this course and prior to employment you must pass the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification exam. The individual will then apply for a New Mexico Emergency Medical Technician- Basic license. This class may fulfill the graduation requirement for a Dual Credit class if UNM continues supporting this program, but it is NOT guaranteed and students must meet requirements to be eligible to apply for UNM credit by the 2nd semester of the class. Students who do not have a social security # may not be able to test for licensure.
