EMS Instructor Licensure

License Management System (LMS)

The Office of EMS and Trauma is now using our new License Management System (LMS). The system is now live for initial medic and instructor applications. The LMS is live today, and applicants can use it to apply for their license in a more efficient manner, and it will allow for licenses to be issued faster. While personnel can use our new LMS today, our office will continue to accept paper applications for initial licensure at the EMT, AEMT, Paramedic, and Level I/Level II/Level III Instructor levels until Friday, 8/16/2019. Any paper application not received in our office before 5pm Eastern on Friday, 8/16/2019 will NOT be processed, and the applicant will receive an email informing them that they must apply using our new LMS. We cannot be responsible for delays in the mail service, so please plan appropriately.
