Initial National Registry EMT-Basic Test Procedures at Southwestern College:

All students must successfully pass the county skills test to receive a course completion.

The county skills test is done within each EMT Basic class. A designated day is set up specifically for this testing and the fee is $100 per student. The fee is to be paid directly to the Cashier in the Student Services Building or at any of the Higher Education Centers (HEC) PRIOR to your testing day. The fee should be posted to the ERD acct.

You must bring your receipt to the testing as proof of payment.

Hours of operation: Monday – Thursday 7:45 AM – 6:00 PM &
Friday 7:45 AM – 4:00 PM. (No Fridays in summer)

When taking the skills exam, you must bring a bystander at least 18 years old and available for the entire testing. (Generally 4 hrs.) Students that do not bring a bystander may be omitted from testing if there is an insufficient number of people to effectively run the skills stations. You MUST show up on time.

If you are not successful in passing the skills test on the first attempt, you will be allowed to re-test on a pre-determined re-test day as long as you do the following:

1. Pay a fee of $20 for each skill you will re-test and bring receipt to the test (A Maximum of $100)
2. Bring a bystander at least 18 years of age
3. Notify the test coordinator of your intent to re-test
4. Show up promptly at the designated time and date

You are allowed to re-test one skill during the county skills test. Should you fail the same skill twice you will have one opportunity to pass the failed skill on the re-test day. A fail of 2 or 3 different skills require a re-test of the failed skills only. A fail of 4 or more skills require a re-test of all eight skills.
