National EMT certification requires students to successfully complete both a cognitive (computer adaptive test) and psychomotor exam (skills test). After that, those in South Carolina will be eligible to receive their SC EMT certification card in the mail.
Reciprocity. Reciprocity for out of state applicants is available from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) provided the applicant has current National Registry certification with at least six months remaining on the certification. A person seeking EMT certification or recertification must undergo a state criminal records check, supported by fingerprints, by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), and a national criminal records check, supported by fingerprints, by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). If North Carolina grants you an EMT certification by reciprocity, it will only be valid as long as the certification on which you were granted reciprocity remains valid. When your original EMT license expires, so will your North Carolina one. At that point you must renew your certification the same way all other North Carolina EMTs do. 2011 information Jennifer L.
