Fisdap Introduces the EMT Readiness Exam 4

Posted by Public Safety Group on 4/18/18 5:02 PM


This week, Fisdap announced the release of the EMT Readiness Exam 4 (ERE 4). The ERE 4 is composed of 200 multiple-choice questions designed to assess the critical-thinking abilities of students nearing completion of an EMT initial training program. It is predictive of future success in the form of first-time pass rates on NREMT’s cognitive exam and is an excellent option to help prepare students for the challenges of a state or national certification.

The exam content reflects evidence-based practices, standards and guidelines from sources such as:

  • American Heart Association
  • NASEMSO National Model EMS Clinical Guidelines
  • National EMS Education standards

Using the National EMS Practice Analysis as an outline, the ERE 4 was developed in collaboration with subject matter experts and approved by an EMS educators advisory committee, a board-certified Emergency Medicine Physician, and a measurement expert (psychometrician). The collective group reviewed each question and agreed that the ERE 4 measures entry-level competency of EMT comprehensive knowledge at a national scope, and is both valid and reliable.

ERE 2 to be Retired

The ERE 4 assesses the same topics as the ERE 2, but with updated and fresh content. The Fisdap team is confident that the ERE 4 will become a trusted training resource, just like the ERE 2. The ERE 2 will be available for the next 6 months before being retired.

Get Started with ERE 4 

The ERE 4 will be scheduled the same way as all other Fisdap exams and must be administered in a secure proctored environment. Learn how to schedule a Fisdap exam here.
