In order to practice as an FR or EMT in the state of Wisconsin you must be licensed and certified. EMT certification is granted through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and EMT licensure is granted through the state of Wisconsin. Here you can find the EMT and FR License Application for Wisconsin. It is in a PDF format that you can download and fill out. In order to submit it you will have to have and include a copy of your National Registry Card and a copy of both sides of your current CPR card.

What was once called the NREMT written exam because it involved taking the National Registry Exam with paper and pencil, is now delivered on a computer based testing system overseen by a private testing company. You must be registered to take this exam through your course coordinator or state EMS representative. Just showing up at a testing center without prior approval is not allowed.

Remember that the state of Wisconsin has made adjustments to NHTSA curriculum for FR, EMT-I and Paramedic. You can find these adjustments in the Wisconsin Training Curricula. Know the difference between what the NREMT requires and what the state requires. There may be variations of protocols that you will need to look over.

Prepare for the NREMT computer exam by subscribing to the practice National Registry questions here on EMT-National-Training.com. Get familiar with the multiple choice format and computer generated questions like the NREMT is going to throw at you and you will increase your odds of success. Track your old examinations and use them to study with detailed explanations and answers. Learn from studying the method of detraction used by many EMS questions to confuse you and you will be less likely to choose an incorrect answer. Here are a few sample EMT exams as well as a few sample Paramedic exams (these do not include grading and answer ability). They are only to show the caliber of EMT and Paramedic questions that are available.

If you want to do some pre-planning here is a schedule of EMT-B, EMT-I and Paramedic practical exam dates. Again you have to be scheduled to take these exams. You cannot just show up.
