Business Hours for EMT Licensing
Effective July 9, 2013 there will be new business hours for EMT Licensing:
The OCEMS Licensing Desk, located at our office in Santa Ana, will be open every week for “Appointment Only” applicants from 8:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday (with the exception of county observed holidays). EMT applicants must contact our office at (714) 834-3500 to schedule an appointment with the OCEMS Licensing Desk to submit their application for processing.
IMPORTANT: Walk-in applicants without an appointment will not be able to complete the application process at our office unless there is an available appointment time on the day of their arrival.

The office will be closed to “Walk-In” and “Appointment” applicants every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. OCEMS Licensing Staff will continue to be available via telephone Monday through Friday to answer EMT licensing questions.
OCEMS Licensing Staff will no longer perform business services (i.e. photo copies, faxes, etc.) on behalf of Certification/Accreditation applicants. Applicants must be prepared to bring copies of their supporting documents (i.e. Certifications, Continuing Education Records, Drivers License, etc.).
Prospective EMT applicants may use the system to apply for California State EMT Certification and/or Orange County EMT Accreditation and pay associated fees entirely online without having to walk into the OCEMS office. The system is operational 24/7 and may be accessed at:http://www.oc-meds.org/licensure/public/orangecounty/
