    Congrats on your medic license!

    I'm an EMT-B, and will be coming from North Central Idaho. I'm going to be in Kansas City for the holidays and am going to work the Omaha test into my time down there.

    Got my app in today and take the test on the 23rd of JAN. Good luck to everyone.

    Got a couple of questions, hopefully someone can answer.

    Does anyone know when they plan on starting an academy?

    Do they have a residency requirement?

I know you don't have to live in the Omaha Metro Area but I think you have to live within 60 miles of the city but not exactly sure.
    According to the e-mail its so that out of state applicants don't have to make 2 trips in on month. We take the written on the 23rd and the CPAt ORIENTATION on the 24th on a provisional basis. Since the tests won't be scored yet.

    Also you are not required to live with in the city limits of Omaha.

    No. You are not required to live within the city limits, or the state for that matter.

    Did your results come in the mail?

    I'm still waiting, but live across the country so it would make sense that it would take longer for me to get it if they mail out results.
