Candidates not confirmed will be dropped from the eligibility list and will be replaced by candidates on the wait list, if applicable.

All candidates must have completed all applicable course registration paperwork. Any candidate who has indicated a positive reply to section B of the EMS Provider Certification Application must have received approval from the PA Dept. of Health-Bureau of EMS prior to testing.
