Emergency Medical Services
Emergency Medical Technician licenses will expire on December 31, 2015. A renewal notice will be mailed out at least 30 days prior to expiration. A current address is required to be on record with the Department according to 172 NAC 11-004.08 and 172 NAC 12-007.04, and 172 NAC 13-013.07.
You are required to submit a completed renewal application and attest to having met the continuing competency requirements. You have the option of downgrading your license during renewal if you have met the continuing competency requirements at the Emergency Medical Responder level. To request the downgrade, complete the application and submit it to our office along with any relevant documentation requested in the application.
Emergency Medical Technicians may renew online, by U.S. mail or in person.

Approximately two weeks after the end of the renewal period, the Department will randomly select a sample of the renewal applications for audit of continuing competency requirements. Each licensee selected for audit must produce documentation of the continuing competency activities.
If a licensee had circumstances beyond their control that prevented them from meeting the continuing competency requirements, they may request a waiver at the time of renewal. The waiver options appear on the renewal application and include the following:
- Being licensed within the 24 months immediately preceding the license expiration date;
- Having served in the regular armed forces of the United States during part of the current renewal period;
- Having suffered a serious or disabling illness or physical disability which prevented completion of the continuing competency requirements during the current renewal period; or
- Having other circumstances beyond their control that prevented completion of the continuing competency requirements during the current renewal period.
