Refresher Education

NAEMT’s Refresher courses help EMS practitioners efficiently, conveniently, and effectively meet today’s continuing education requirements. Refreshers for Paramedics, Advanced EMTs, and EMTs can be taught in a classroom or virtually.

Refresher courses are built from the latest editions of NAEMT’s globally recognized courses to fulfill the national component of the National Registry’s recertification requirements, in accordance with the National Continued Competency program (NCCP). Each Refresher course meets the NREMT requirements for each training level:

  • Paramedic Virtual Refresher: 30 hours
  • Advanced EMT Virtual Refresher: 25 hours
  • EMT Virtual Refresher: 20 hours

NAEMT’s Refresher courses are developed using NAEMT’s evidence-based, field-tested, and quality-assured curriculum, including Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS), Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC), Geriatric Education for EMS (GEMS), and EMS Safety.

Course curriculum includes time set aside for “Knowledge Checks,” during which instructors can pose questions to students, creating an engaging educational experience and ensuring comprehension. The Refresher series is CAPCE accredited for the respective number of hours at each level.
