Recertify Your EMT Credential
This course is designed for EMTs who need continuing education to maintain their NREMT certification.
This class is designed for both EMT’s and Wilderness EMT’s who need continuing education towards renewal of their NREMT and/or state EMT certification(s). The course follows the mandated education set forth by the EMT National Continued Competency Program and the curriculum is the latest release of the EMT National Education Standards.
This 3-day course presents material via lecture, hands-on skill practice and scenario-based training. The class provides 24 hours of continuing education, 20 of which is tailored to meet the NREMT national component distribution. The four additional hours can be applied to the local, state, or individual component of the NREMT requirements. All hours can be applied to North Carolina (and certain other states*) recertification requirements. Due to the 4-year credential period for N.C. EMT’s, 40 hours of refresher training covering the National Component topics is required for recertification.
*Credential holders from other states are encouraged to contact their respective state office of EMS for clarification on renewal requirements as well as acceptance of out-of-state training.
