If you pass the EMT Program with an 80% or higher, but fail to pass the cognitive NREMT exam, Unitek EMT gives you an option to retake the 14-Day Boot Camp* within 18 months, for no additional charge. Unitek EMT will issue a voucher for the NREMT exam and, if needed, a second voucher for the second attempt.
(Note: The tuition cost will be waived for the program retake. Charges associated with airfare, hotel and meals are not covered by Unitek EMT.)
The following additional requirements apply to the cognitive NREMT Exam retake offer:
Student MUST have successfully completed the entire Unitek EMT Program and associated materials prior to the scheduled date of the cognitive NREMT exam and achieved a minimum score of 80% cumulative grade average in the EMT program.
The first cognitive NREMT exam attempt must be within 30 days of completion of the program. The second attempt (if needed) must be within 90 days from the result of the first attempt. The retake is ONLY valid for students that attempted (and did not pass) the cognitive NREMT exam on the first attempt and within the required time frame. If, for any reason, the student did not make the first attempt within the required time, the retake offer is considered null and void.
Students understand that they must take the NREMT exam within two years of the completion of the program or they will not be able to apply for the NREMT Certification. Psychomotor (Practical skill) examination results are valid for one year from the date of the examination. National EMT certification requires successful completion of both a cognitive and psychomotor exam. Passed portions of the exam (both cognitive and psychomotor) remain valid for a 12-month period. Practical skill examination results are valid for one year from the date of the exam.
To attend a future Boot Camp* for free, students must bring their textbooks and uniform.
The following will void your NREMT Exam Retake option:
- Any violations of classroom policy
- Not successfully completing the didactic portion of the course
- Failed Psychomotor NREMT skills examination
- Missed more than 12 hours
