About This Quiz

Like a ride in the ambulance, this quiz is going to be a quick one. We are challenging you to not only pass this EMT certification exam, but blow away the competition by passing it in just seven minutes! Time will tell, but that patient in the back is counting on you!

Have you ever stopped and truly thought about how important of a job an EMT is? These Emergency Medical Technicians meet people when they are in possibly the worst conditions of their lives. They are in the middle of an emergency and call an ambulance for help, and these EMTs have to assess the situation and make judgment calls all the time.

That's why EMTs tend to have a lot more training than you think. Not only are they passing this exam, but they are also going through a 2-year associate's degree program. This includes passing rigorous coursework and clinical training. Health care is no joke, which is why they take the job of an EMT so seriously. So, can you pass this quiz? You'll be asked everything from respiratory rates for adults to clearing an airway for an infant. Can you handle the pressure?
