So, you just sat for the NREMT exam and now you are in the waiting game--what’s next? As you may have noticed, once your computerized test ended, it didn’t tell you whether you passed or failed! Regardless of whether your test kicked you out at 75 questions or 124 questions, there is no way to tell for sure whether you passed or failed the NREMT exam at the time of completion. The National Registry notifies testers of their outcomes via USPS mail and most people receive their certification around two weeks after sitting for the exam. However, there is a much faster and more efficient way of seeing whether you passed or not!
On the NREMT website:
Sign in to your account (the same profile that you used to apply for the exam)
Go to the Certification Application Status tab
Click on the “results” tab and read the application summary of the test that you took.
Usually, within 48 hours after sitting for the exam, the National Registry will update your profile of the outcome of the exam. If you pass, you will be able to print your exam results. If you fail your NREMT exam, you will be able to schedule a retest 15 days from the day of the original exam. Candidates can retake the exam up to six times in an effort to pass.
