Paramedic Refresher

For 2021, the Paramedic National Continued Competency Program (NCCP).  The new process for recertification from the NREMT, the NCCP, requires 30 hours of National Content.  This course will cover those 30 hours, and replaces the previous 48 hour refresher course.  In addition to the national content, there are 30 more hours required by the recertifying provider to complete on their own.  For more information on the NREMT recertification process please visit www.nremt.org .

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.
