I 'm already an AEMT. How long would I have to attend the academy?

If you are already a NC AEMT or higher, you may be able to move into Operations after week 6.  

If your EMT certification is from anywhere other than the state of North Carolina, you must be able to get reciprocity by completing a Reciprocity Application at NCOSFM.
