Paramedic Refresher

This course is a “EMT-P to Paramedic, NREMT Refresher” and the topics presented will cover the transition material required by the NREMT.

Refresher programs are a review of the original program in a condensed number of hours. While ideal for the purpose of remediation, they are 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. They are not 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.  The Paramedic Refresher Program will also include material to meet the requirements of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician (NREMT) transition policy.

Students who attend all sessions will be eligible for ACLS and ITLS Refresher /Recertification (additional cost involved)
