A new contract was signed but will not go into effect until the budget is signed.
    Yep, I called the IDPH last week to ask why there are no tests being scheduled and was told the same thing. It's everything, EMT-P,I,B. You name it, it's stuck in limbo. The lady I spoke to said to contact my state legislator to complain.

    5 of 5 passed the exam from the Parkland College program in Champaign IL with scores averaging in the 80's. We took the exam on June 23rd 2007. Still waiting for our IDPH licenses of course. Told it could take until middle August to obtain them.

    I took mine june 30th. 8 out of 20 failed, and only 3 out of 17 from another hospital that took the test with us passed. Next tuesday there is an "emergency" meeting with a bunch of chiefs/medical officers and the idph which i heard about from a reliable source in the ems field.

    Done and Done

    Took the test on June 16th and got the results back last Friday 80%
    It was a pretty tough test, but I guess the company that was giving the test contract expired, so they don't know when the next test will be given. Good luck to everyone.

    I got my results back exactly one week later. About 8 EMT's from my system just took it last week and 6 of them also got their results back one week later. Good luck guys!

    haha. Well this is Boczek, so yeah needless to say we took the same test. So we are pretty much screwed if we don't get our results back pretty quick huh? Kinda sucks that this attempt counts against us if the state has no confidence in their testing agency. Oh well, at least afterwards was a good time! You missed on some crazy games of Big Game Hunter!

    testing

    im sure we did, its sloat, i contacted the test ctr. and idph, i guess the contract between the testing service and idph ends at the end of june, which means no more test for a while, the next test is june 16th in carbondale but its hard to register for it when it takes 2- 4 weeks for our results from the last time, funny how that works huh. the past fail rate is 65% accordinging to dr gaines assistant in springfield, let me know if anyone hears different.........
