Consolidated Test Sites

All BLS Level Consolidated Testing has been Cancelled through June 30, 2021.

After careful consideration, the Office of EMS Management Team has decided to cancel all further Consolidated Testing at the BLS level through June 30, 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  With so many unknown factors in the months ahead and the amount of advanced planning and commitment required to hold a CTS, we determined cancellation to be in the best interest of the health, safety and well‐being of all participants.   

The Office will begin working with the Regional Councils and the National Registry to slowly ramp up BLS psychomotor testing in the Commonwealth once conditions on the ground permit this to happen.

EMR and EMT programs will be provided further guidance about how the psychomotor component of their programs will be addressed under separate cover as programs are announced and approved.
