What if I have been arrested or convicted of a crime in the past?
If you have an arrest and/or conviction history, this may affect your ability to obtain an EMT Initial Certification or Renewal Certification. The references below may assist you in understanding how an arrest and/or conviction history may affect your ability to obtain EMT Certification. Due to the fact that every situation is unique, before you enroll in an EMT Course, you should review these authorities to better understand how your arrest and/or conviction may affect your ability to be certified as an EMT. Orange County EMS is unable to evaluate any arrest and/or conviction until you complete the EMT application process which includes the completion of the LiveScan process.
