Preparing for Modules

Before taking a MyEMSCert module, ABEM recommends reviewing the provided resources.

You may complete the modules in whatever order you choose, based on what is available to you. Answers with rationales will be provided immediately. Modules are open book, so study requirements are minimal. However, you must take the modules by yourself. Please note: New versions of the EMS modules are available every three months. If you do not pass a module, you may have to wait up to three months before you can retake it.
