Advanced Life Support (ALS) Training Opportunities

EMS Provider Ongoing Training & Evaluation Program (OTEP)

The Skagit County Department of EMS has developed a countywide OTEP program for Paramedics. This process has been completed, reviewed, and approved by Dr. Russell.

EMT, EMR, and Paramedic Certification/Re-certification information

For Initial Certification, please download the form necessary from the Washington State Dept of Health. Once this form is downloaded and completed please bring in a copy of your course completion certificate, current ID and NREMT certificate. We will then evaluate it, have it signed by the MPD and submitted to the state.

For Recertification, please go online here and log in with your credential number (you can look it up here if you cannot find it) follow the prompts to completion. The request will then be reviewed by your Medical Officer, our Training Officer, then by the MPD. We would prefer you do the online renewal instead of the traditional paper method.

For agency affiliation changes or personnel status changes, please go online here and log in with your credential number (you can look it up here if you cannot find it) follow the prompts to completion. The request will then be reviewed by your Medical Officer, our Training Officer, then by the MPD. We would prefer you do the online renewal instead of the traditional paper method.
