 Dear Nassau EMS Professional;

ALL ALS providers are advised that they must be in possession of current Nassau REMAC issued ALS Credentials in order to practice ALS skills in Nassau County.

The credentialing process will require ALS Providers to take, and pass, the Nassau REMAC Credentialing Exam. The passing grade for this examination is set at 80 percent, and the exam will be suitable for AEMT, EMT-CCís and Paramedics.  All Nassau ALS Providers are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Nassau ALS Protocols before attempting this exam.
