    Looks like you're right...However, when you get to the questions is asks you if you have VA or NREMT-B. The word is that they are doing pop out classes so you will only go through a refresher EMT. So you will need NREMT or VA EMT

    Paramedic process is always open. Firefighter/EMT is open quarterly.

    I can tell you with certainty that EMT certification is not a prerequisite for the FF/EMT recruitment.
