Welcome to the NJ-OEMS Certification System!


Attention ALL EMT Instructors and program Coordinators:

Since the implementation of the www.njems.us certification system, the New Jersey Department of Health Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) has continuously monitored the system processes and program management. Through this process and program audits OEMS has identified a few items that require your immediate attention

As part of the educational process and student management, it is paramount that every student uses their unique EMS ID number on every document, test, quiz, homework assignment, psychomotor assessment, sign-in sheet, and clinical documentation form. The use of the student EMS ID number should be incorporated into every facet of their educational process as their unique identifier. This includes using the EMS ID along with the students signature on any documents.

All forms and documentation submitted on behalf of or by a student that is signed by a preceptor, Field Training Officer (FTO), instructor etc should always include a legible printed name, signature, EMS ID and if not associated with your agency in the case of hospital or ambulance ride time the contact information for that individual preceptor/FTO. This information should be clearly written and legible.

All registered students should have an account, EMS ID number and be marked as “Registered” in your program before the start of the second class session. Any student who has difficulty obtaining an EMS ID number should consult with the program coordinator. In an effort to streamline the process and reduce the number of individual inquires to OEMS, we are requesting the program coordinator follow up with OEMS to resolve any student issues revolving around an EMS ID number. Please do not direct the students contact OEMS.

Students who have a criminal background or are marked as “Legal Pending” should contact Mr. Michael Mooney at Michael.Mooney@doh.nj.gov or (609) 633-7777. You will not be able to register these students in your program until their “Legal Pending” status has been cleared. It is the educator’s responsibility to make sure the student understands the rules and regulations regarding the receipt of education and obtaining certification.

Please update all student status’, within 24 hours of any change, utilizing the following guidance:

“ADMIN DROP” should be used for students who have withdrawn or been removed from the class for administrative reasons. All students marked with this status should include a reason in comment box (i.e. “waitlist” or “withdrew”).

“NO SHOW” should be used for students who failed to show up for the first day without notifying the coordinator or being excused.

“NOT SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED” should be used for students who are removed for unsuccessful academic, clinical, psychomotor or affective reasons. All students marked with this status should also include a reason the comment box (i.e. “failed module 2 cognitive exam” or “unsuccessful final psychomotor exam”).

“INCOMPLETE” should be used for students who have met all completion requirements with exception to an outstanding academic, clinical or field remediation requirement. The “Incomplete” status should be documented on the last scheduled day of the class and completed within 30 days of the scheduled program completion date.

“REGISTERED ONLY” NO student should remain in this status.

“SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED” should be used for students who have successfully completed all attendance, psychomotor, cognitive and affective program requirements.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to any OEMS education staff member.
    Attention to all instructors: As a reminder newly certified NJ EMTs with a (600000) series EMT Number DO NOT have access to www.njoemscert.com.
