Paramedic Refresher

Refresher programs are a review of the original content from the National Standard Curriculum for Paramedics.  The Paramedic Refresher program condenses the information into 48 hours of lecture and practical instruction.  While ideal for the purpose of remediation, the Paramedic Refresher course is not intended to expand the cognitive or psychomotor ability above the entry level.  Therefore, refresher courses should not be considered a means of continued expansion of cognitive information and introduction of new psychomotor skills.  The Paramedic Refresher course is intended to deliver relevant contemporary information to practitioners who are currently active in the field.

  • Students who complete the Refresher Program will be successful in meeting the requirements of the National Registry of EMTs for entry or re-registration.

 

TUITION: $275
