The modules cover both the core and flexible refresher course content, offering medics the capability of satisfying 100% of the required 48 hours without ever having to leave their home or station. The lectures are scheduled to accommodate the busy medic’s varying shifts as well as addressing the needs of medics in varying time zones, even paramedics overseas. CECBEMS/CAPCE Accredited F-5 VILT

The NREMT requires that at least 38 hours of a 48 hour EMT refresher be delivered in an instructor led format. Our refresher programs delivers all 48-hours in an Instructor led format! This Paramedic refresher does not provide practical skills validation. Your training officer or medical director must help you fulfill this requirement.

Passing this NREMT approved, 48 hour DOT Paramedic refresher training course will:

  • Give you CECBEMS/CAPCE credit for the NREMT approved DOT Paramedic refresher.
  • Allow you to take the NREMT examination 3 more times.

CAUTION: Other companies claim to provide a true DOT Paramedic Refresher, yet do not offer interactive instructor-led sessions (VILT). The National Registry REQUIRES that your refresher training have at least 38 hours of instructor-led instruction. This can be accomplished in a traditional or virtual classroom. IF IN DOUBT, contact the NREMT to verify.

CECBEMS/CAPCE course number for refresher course is 17-Gann-F5-0001
