Advancing the EMS profession

NAEMT Refreshers

The NAEMT Virtual Refresher series is designed to provide EMS training officers and educators with concise courses that meet NREMT’s national recertification requirements in accordance with the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP). There are three refresher courses in the series: paramedic (30 hours), AEMT (25 hours), and EMT (20 hours). Paramedics, AEMTs and EMTs in the United States may take the refresher course for their certification/licensure level. These courses may also be offered in other countries to prehospital providers at the commensurate training level.

The NAEMT virtual refresher courses are built from NAEMT’s evidence-based continuing education courses, including Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS), Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC), Geriatric Education for EMS (GEMS), and EMS Safety. Applicable portions of these courses have been incorporated into the schedule of each refresher course. The refresher courses are designed to be taught virtually, using online platforms such as GoToMeeting, Zoom, Webex, Skype, or other virtual instructor-led teaching (VILT) platforms.

All NAEMT continuing education courses are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Prehospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) and recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT).
