Certifications to and from other States

Practitioners holding certification in another state and/or with the National Registry and wish to receive Pennsylvania certification need to complete the reciprocity process.  To obtain a packet, contact Jackie Strasbaugh at EMSI. She can be reached at 412-494-5570 or email at jstrasbaugh@emsi.org  Jackie manages this process for the ten counties of Southwestern Pennsylvania. If your service or school affiliation is not in the EMSI region, please contact the EMS Regional Council in that part of the Commonwealth.

*If you have a state certification (in a state other than PA) you can apply for reciprocity, BUT it will be granted ONLY if you have a service affiliation or school affiliation (EMS Education Institute) in Pennsylvania.
 
*We can no longer issue providers certifications so they can “look for employment” in PA.

 

Practitioners seeking to transfer a PA EMS certification to another state and need a verification form completed should contact Jackie Stasbaugh at jstrasbaugh@emsi.org or you can fax in care of Jackie Stasbaugh at 412-787-2340.
