NQEMT Examination Results at EMT and Paramedic level for 2013

One of the functions of PHECC is to conduct examinations and award the NQEMT at the levels of EMT, Paramedic and Advanced Paramedic. The awards are made when candidates have successfully completed all elements of the NQEMT examinations. The examination permits candidates to demonstrate that they have the necessary skills and competencies required to be a pre-hospital emergency care practitioner and in addition have their name entered on the PHECC professional Register.

Examination dates are published in the exam schedule published on our website.


The Paramedic level OSCE examinations were devolved to NASC/UCD and to DFB/RCSI in 2012. The Advanced Paramedic (AP) level examinations were devolved to NASC/UCD in 2011.

Since April 2014 NQEMT EMT exam candidates are undertaking the Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) component of the examination at Prometric Test Centres located in the Republic of Ireland. Prometric is an international organisation who operate an extensive network of test centres for a multitude of organisations worldwide. PHECC continue to conduct the OSCE component of the NQEMT EMT examination.

Congratulations to all who were successful in the NQEMT during 2013. Here is a breakdown of the NQEMT results at Paramedic and EMT level for 2013.
