Each state has unique requirements for entry into their state as an initial Paramedic. Most states, however, will accept NREMT certification in order to initially become a Paramedic. Our EMS 206 (F5) - Paramedic Refresher (Virtual Instructor Led Training) Course meets "Traditional Refresher" requirements under the NREMT Paramedic Recertification Brochure. The NREMT provides the credit because we are a CAPCE Accredited Provider. You can also check with your State EMS Authority for further information regarding acceptance and requirements.

Your course validation certificate will be available immediately upon course completion. Therefore, as soon as you have completed and successfully passed the final examination, you will be issued your validation certificate.

My State/County certification lapsed. Can I get it back?

Some states permit re-entry or certification after a lapse of certification based upon obtaining a certain number of CEs. The NREMT requires that you take a state approved Paramedic Refresher Course as well as pass the cognitive and psychomotor examinations. This program, by being approved through the state of California, EMS Authority to offer continuing education, qualifies as a state of California Paramedic Refresher program. As such, you can use this course in California to meet the requirements for the Paramedic Refresher portion, however, you will still be required to take the psychomotor exam and cognitive examination. You can check with your State EMS Authority for further information regarding acceptance and requirements.
