Before you can work as an EMT, a prospective employer must verify that you have met all requirements and are certified to work as an EMT in South Carolina. To ensure they can find your information easily, you should create a profile on the S.C. EMS Data – Credentialing Information System (CIS). Do this before you finish your training course.
Step 1: Go to https://apps.emspic.org/CIS/Go. At the bottom of the page, select the link labeled: “Click here for the Public Access site”.
Step 2: Once you’re on the Public Access site, select “South Carolina” as the state you wish to view, then click the shaded link just below it labeled “Enter Public CIS”. You should now be logged into the system as a South Carolina Guest.
Step 3: On the left-hand side of the page, click “Personnel.” This will open up a drop-down “Personnel Search” option.
Step 4: Click on “Personnel Search”. Enter your first and last name in the spaces provided, then click “Search.” (Do not enter any other information.)
Step 5: Register/Create Profile. On the left side of the screen, click the word “Profile.” You’ll see “Register to use CIS.” Click that link. Enter the required information, then click “Save” in the bottom right-hand corner. You are now registered in CIS and have been assigned a six-digit number. This six-digit SC number will become your S.C. EMT certification number after you have satisfied all certification.
