EMT Training Permits
The training permit actually has two uses; part of a legal crew on a BLS
ambulance and authorization to participate in clinical activities within
a training program. The first is for a individuals that needs to be used
as part of a licensed crew as described in DHS 110.50(1)(a) on an
EMT-Basic ambulance for an EMT-Basic service. If the service is licensed
above the level of EMT-Basic, this option is not available to the
individual. The instructor does not have anything to do with this
process as it is an application that is between the individual, the
service director, and the medical director. The Basic Training Permit
(ONLY FOR PART OF A LICENSED EMT-BASIC SERVICE) application is found in
System (exit DHS) under "Apply for a License".
second use is local to the training center. This training permit allows
a student to participate in their clinical experience and "ride
along". No clinical experience or "ride along" may begin
without a training permit approved at the appropriate level of training.
The process for the issuance of training permits is a simple one and
requires very little time if done correctly.
Timely Permit Review for Students Enrolled in a
- Please complete the application for
training permits as early as possible. It is not our wish that an
individual misses a clinical opportunity or has to rush to get them
done while waiting for a permit.
- Make sure that the permit application is
complete. This means that all boxes are filled in and that the
appropriate signatures are present. Our office is only able to act
on a complete application. If the applications are not complete,
they will be returned to the school and it will delay processing and
prevent participation in your clinical experience .
- Make sure that the appropriate paperwork
is attached to the application. The needed information is described
on the permit itself. If you answer "yes" to the driving
history question, the only acceptable documentation is a Wisconsin
DOT driving abstract available by calling 608-261-2566. This
abstract must be printed within 30 days of the application
submission. If they answer "yes" to the criminal history
questions, then they must submit the following information for each
offense convicted or pending (a). Police Report or criminal
complaint information (b). Judgment of conviction and sentencing
(c). Verification of compliance with all terms of sentencing
including chemical dependency assessments if ordered by the court
and verification of compliance/completion of probation or

For students enrolled in a training program there
will only be a returned e-mail approving the permits. Adhering to the
processes as described above will further enhance our ability to provide
timely decisions to those waiting for permits. Please be aware that due
to the length and complexity of some criminal history issues, it may not
always be possible to give an immediate decision and we may need to
confer with our legal council regarding the final decision. This is
usually the exception and not the rule.
