This course is specifically designed for CURRENT EMT’s that need continuing education hours or wish to renew their current* North Carolina EMT credential. The course was designed following the North Carolina Office of Emergency Medical Services 2016 document “EMS Refresher Educational Program Guideline,” however, this course IS NOT A “REFRESHER” COURSE. The curriculum for this renewal course meets or exceeds the National Education Standards curricula and the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requirements for re-credentialing EMT’s. This renewal course is intended for the EMS community to use for continuing education and/or re-credentialing a current* North Carolina EMT credential.
Upon successful completion of this course, learners will have met all necessary requirements for renewal of a current North Carolina EMT credential.
*Providers with an expired NC credential are required to complete a “Refresher course” which includes a Technical Scope of Practice (TSOP) evaluation. If your credential is set to expire or expires during the timeframe of this course, it WILL NOT count for a “refresher” course and you will not be able to renew your credential.
National Registry Disclaimer: This course includes and EXCEEDS the required National Continuing Competency Program (NCCP) 60 hours as outlined by the National Registry.
NREMT Waived Distributive Education guidelines: In September 2022 the National Registry’s Board of Directors announced 22-Resolution-06, which addresses the permanent removal of limits on Distributive Education. According to the NREMT Website this “applies to all requirements for continuing education, including recertification, state license and re-entry eligibility requirements, and refresher training after three failed examinations.”
Therefore, you may use 100% of this course for NREMT!
