Why or when do I need to certify with NorCal EMS

Nor-Cal will process all of your application materials, including course completion certificates and NREMT tests (if required for your level), as well as the LiveScan/fingerprinting once all collected. When all required paperwork is in, Nor-Cal connects with the State EMSA and puts you in and updates your information.

What’s different about certifying with Nor-Cal EMS?

All LEMSAs can have slightly different scopes of practice, both expanded basic scope and Local Optional Scopes. These may require additional training. Find the BLS optional scope and the Paramedic LOSOP.
