NC Rescue Technician Crossover Credits


This table lists the courses that can be "crossed over" to the new Rescue Technician certification. If you have successfully completed the course(s) listed in the left column, you can get credit from DOI for the corresponding Rescue Technician course. This is not automatic! You would be well advised to request a copy of your transcript by writing:

   Kim Willams
   Office of State Fire Marshall
   1202 Mail Service Center
   Raleigh, NC  27699-1202

Note that phone requests for transcripts are not allowed. Once you have your transcript, compare it to the one you also requested from your community college. Make sure that all FF1, FF2, and ERT courses that you have taken have transferred (Note that it can take up to 3 months for college records to be uploaded). If you have already completed your ERT certification, you will become a RT in Vehicle and Machinery Rescue. There are no bridge courses.

In addition to the information below, there is a FAQ on the SFM website (Click Here) that may answer questions you have about this program.
