The complete exam consists of a five station exam process. All five stations must be passed in order to successfully pass the exam. If only one station is failed then the candidate must meet with their  EMS instructor for retraining,  at which time the skill will be signed off and submitted to the State. If two stations are failed then the participant must schedule and take a 2 Station Retest which only requires retesting those failed stations. If 3 or more stations are failed then a complete exam must be retaken which requires testing all five stations again.

The exam consists of the following stations:
